Here's a shot of one of the hummingbirds. Friday, May 20, we head for Yosemite National Park, driving along CA Route 140 next to the Merced River
Interesting shadow formations from the trees on the hillside We arrive at the one way bridge that takes traffic across the river.  It was - installed due to a rock slide that blocked the highway several years ago. We just missed the green light so had to wait for traffic coming the other way before we could cross the bridge. Here's a view of the rock slide that blocked the original highway Our first sign of snow
