    Looks like a nice, peaceful campsite. Have fun in Tuolomne Meadows- a good time of year to go there as it will not be too crowded- especially during the week. Safe travels !

    If you are referring to the stone pathways, they are called a labyrinth.
    You walk the pathways for meditation.

    I like Intermission's interpretation better :-)

    Tuolumne Meadows was, as always, a special place. T- shirt weather at 8,800'. On a four mile hike along the Dana Fork of the Tuolumne we encountered no one. The pools were tempting, but a bit too nippy for a dip

    Pools like those pictured are why I like to hike with a fly rod. A chance to say Hello to the aquatic neighbors.

    It's tarantula season in the Sierra foothills. I believe this Man in Black to be a male Johnny Cash tarantula, first found near Folsom Prison in 2015. He crossed my path in Mariposa about 4 in the afternoon.

    But a really serendipitous discovery was this praying, Praying Mantis, at the Immaculate Conception Catholic Church memorial grotto near the little town of Tres Pinos, south of Hollister.

    I LOVE Praying Mantis' ! I was on a job a few years ago, where there was a water faucet that we used for hand washing, water bottle filling, etc. There was a Praying Mantis there who would actually look up at you, as if asking for water. I always gave her plenty of water

    Sled, I love the Tuolomne pics, as living in Hawaii we have never been there. I know you have been a Yosemite regular for many years, keep it up.

    What is it and what is it's notoriety? And no, Howard did not build this, nor is it Philpott's new Air-C Delta commuter.
