Housekeeping Camp

Housekeeping Camp

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.

I was walking to the Merced to set up for a night shot – to try to stack for star trails (Click here to see what I got). I happened to look back and this is what I saw …Moon light and camplight almost merging all separated by these tall tall trees.
