|Tuolumne River Bed Rock|
It sounded like a fun adventure and it was. We started by having a late lunch a bit off the trail and a little ways up the dome. The distant views were a bit hazy because of the lightning fire that the NPS is letting burn over by Badger Pass. Though we were a good distance away the wind was blowing our direction and the hint of fsmoke was in the air.
After lunch Dave led the way across the dome headed toward the river. Charlotte and I lagged behind when all of a sudden she says, "Terry stop!" Right between Dave and us were some deer heading up the Dome.
|The Buck does on stop here.|
I think Dave might have been a little bummed he missed them. He most likely would have gotten a much better pic.
Back on the Dome near the end of our return hike Dave asked if we wanted to go to the top. At this point my disgruntled legs were exclaiming, "no thanks". My heart and lungs were in total agreement with the legs.
This was the evening shot of two distant domes from our spot on Pothole. Sadly there weren't any clouds just some hazy smokey air.
A great time with great people. Looking forward to hiking this area again.
Thanks Charlotte and Dave.
