Yosemite :: Tuolumne Canyon loop

Been doing more walking than cooking this summer. Forgot the camera on a few trips. Here are pictures from my loop through Tuolumne canyon and ten lakes.

I started in white wolf

Great post and nice photos. You know your socks smell bad when they can stand on their own.

Thanks for reading my blog, I appreciate the comments. I didn't smell the socks, but I'm going to agree with your statement. You know the socks are being abused when they stand up by themselves.
