Yosemite National Park
#11
I’ve never had any altitude sickness, it’s just a bit more tiring when out walking around.

Lovely photos (again), Blanch.

Higher elevations mean lower air pressure and less oxygen.  It takes some people more time to adapt.  My mom got terrible headaches.  But Yosemite has lower areas, too.  Just take it easy and don't overdo.

Re: Yosemite being so quiet...  The Los Angeles Times published an article that might have something to do with it, and it's been popping up on my phone for the last four days:. "Want to avoid Yosemite-size crowds? Sample the other  national parks in Calif."

I wish they'd done that before the last time I was there.

Note to new Yosemite visitors: If you're in one of the campgrounds there, and a bear heads in your direction while you're trying bacon on the stove or campfire, SET THE FRYING PAN DOWN and back away.  The bacon now belongs to the bear, whether you like it or not.

 YOUR PICTURES ARE GREAT!  I LIKE OLD HOUSES,  OLD VEHICLES AND GHOST TOWNS.  I MOSTLY LEARNED TO DRIVE IN MY GRANDFATHERS 1951 2 DOOR CHEVY.  I DON'T THINK THERE WAS A ABANDONED STRUCTURE IN MY COUNTY'  THAT I HAD NOT GIVEN A ONCE OVER AND SOMETIMES ENTERED TO EXPLORE.

P.S.  I SOMETIMES WATCH "WONDER HUSSY" ON YOU TUBE.  SHE VISITS A LOT OF ABANDONED PLACES INCLUDING MINES AND GHOST TOWNS, OFTEN HIKING IN.  ALSO SOME REMOTE HOT SPRINGS.  MAINLY IN NEVADA AND CALIFORNIA.  I THINK SHE IS CERTAINLY YARC QUALIFIED AND THAT'S WHY I LIKE HER.  ON 7-10-2019 " UFO ON NUDE BEACH? SAUVIE ISLAND OREGON".  I HAVEN'T SEEN IT.  THERE ARE MANY VIDEOS OF LOCATIONS IN THE DESERT, IN CASE ANYONE IS INTERESTED.

I went back to Yosemite today, with an old friend who was my boss in Yosemite over 30 years ago. We had a nice trip to Olmsted Point and lunch at Tenaya Lake and the afternoon. At Bodie state park. It was just a lovely day and it ended at the Mono Restaurant with a sunset view of Mono Lake.

I’ll have pictures of Bodie to post when I get them off the camera. If anyone ever wants to camp in this area PM me and I can tell you what I know. This is my third summer in the High Sierras. I highly recommend the place.

I've been in the Sierra Nevada Mts. many times and never had a problem with altitude sickness... never thought to drink more water either.
Peace...

According to this article: https://traveltips.usatoday.com/prepare-...02863.html Altidude sickness usually starts around 8K feet. Interesting read.
