Hetch Hetchy Loop

I drove to Hetch Hetchy and started from the campground and went across the dam and up to the Beehive trail intersection where I decided to make # 1 camp.

Bumblebee, High Sierra, Yosemite

Sitting at "The Beehive" on Moraine Ridge above Jack Main Canyon this bumbler came to get some salt off this old sweaty backpacker. No problem. I like bumblers.

Bumblebee at "The Beehive" on Moraine Ridge in Yosemite National Park.

The bumblebee's probiscus has the texture of 80 grit sandpaper. Interesting, as this indicates that bumblebees remove pollen by sanding it out of flowers.

Endless Butterflies
Hiking South of the Lake Vernon trail junction backpacking down Jack Main Canyon in the Northwest Yosemite backcountry I first came upon the temperate zone of lush vegetation supporting a splendid length of trail filled with endless butterflies.
