Nov 18, 2013 - Greeley Hill, Yosemite

11/18 We got ready last night and got underway by 0800 this am to head south. We have a long drive and it is alot easier to hook up in the day light.

May 13, 2010 - Yosemite National Park

Jun 9, 2007 - Greeley Hill and Coulterville, CA

We left 3 Rivers - not really wanting to. Three Rivers was so very peaceful. We did want to see Yosemite National Park; therefore, we forced ourselves to travel. Our campground (base camp) was Yosemite Westlake Campground and RV Park, "Above the Fog, Below the Snow", Greeley Hill, California. When we pulled in and parked the two rigs for the guys to check in, Bonnie, Tyler and I were entertained by two goats. The goats were tied to a tree on long cables so they could 'mow' the grass in that area. The manager of the campground told us...
