Yosemite Photo Run with Mom Itinerary (3 Days)

This itinerary covered a weekend at Yosemite National Park. I cynically refer to this particular trip the "change-in-company-vacation-policy" trip because they essentially changed the rules in such a way that I either had to use some vacation hours or lose them as they reduced the maximum accrual. And since I didn't have any place in particular I was itching to go, I decided on Yosemite even though I had been here many times before. In any case, this trip was so last minute (would you believe I was able to score an Upper Pines Campground spot in less than a week before the visit?) that Julie couldn't take the Friday off so my Mom decided to come with me. It turned out to be a great Mother-Son trip, and we managed to re-visit old haunts in ways that we previously hadn't done before, especially with the guidance of Michael Fry's Photographer's Guide to Yosemite book. So my non-cynical name for this trip was the "Yosemite Photo Run" since we were aiming to view the same old attractions in the best light...
