Annual Backpacking Trip to Yosemite -- August 2010yosemite

Day 5, August 16. We backpacked down the Porcupine Creek trail from Tioga Road to the lip of Yosemite Valley. We set up camp along Lehemite Creek, then day-hiked west to the top of Yosemite Fall and back. In the evening, several deer wandered through camp feeding on tasty morsels in the darkness.
