Merced River outside Housekeeping camp, Yosemite National Park.
For the first time ever, I ended up staying at the housekeeping camp in Yosemite National Park. I have previously stayed at the tent city in Curry village – and this was a treat. The housekeeping cabin consisted of three concrete walls, concrete roof, one canvas entrance, beds, and a patio with a fire ring. It was also right next to the Merced river. It was so cold in the night that the two space
heaters we got were life savers.
Waking up in the morning and walking to the Merced is a treat in itself. Add to that the fog burning away, the smell of wood smoke and breakfast cooking at various campfires, the sound of the Merced flowing over the rocks, the muted sounds of humanity waking up…and the sun light streaming through the trees… what a sight! I had to try to photograph and this is what I ended up with.
