My wife and I just returned from 4 days in Yosemite Valley.
The water pump that failed us on the way home from Rice, TX last week, arived just in time for our 4 day trip to Yosemite Valley.
The first night we stayed in a casino parking lot. We had a nice meal at one of the casino's restaurants and and turned in with Security riding bicycles around us all night.
After a nice quiet nights sleep, we drove about an hour more to the valley.
Due to construction delayed by Global Warmi...er, uh, unusually heavy snowfall, our less than desirable site at Lower Pines Campground was switched to an "on the river" site at North Pines. Oddly, Upper Pines Campground was nearly empty.
The weather while we were there was from roughly freezing at night to mid 50s during the day. There was also a very light accumulation of tourists.
