Yosemite---Sept.

OB Bambi spent last week at site 214 in the Upper Pines. There is a small creek that runs right behind the sites on the last loop of the Upper Pines campground. While there we took in the Yosemite Theater and Lee Stetson doing "The Spirit of John Muir." I recommend his performances during the summer in Yosemite. I rode my bike through the campgrounds every day and there wasn't any other silver besides Bambi. I did see an Airstream Sprinter parked on the road near Camp Curry. Photos are of Bambi and small dogs at camp and "Orange 85" a black bear that wondered through our camp mid-day.

I'll be parked in that last loop in Upper Pines next week and I'm definitely looking forward to it!

Camping later October in Yosemite? When do they close the sites for the season?

If one wanted to spend 2-3 days in three different campsites in Yosemite so as to get to see the whole park, which campgrounds are the best for the valley floor, the big sequoias and what else to see?

You could take daytrips around Yosemite and stay in the same campground. The Hetch Hetchy area does not have a campground so far as I can remember and other areas are fairly easy to get to.

The Sequoias—well, most of them—are in Sequoia NP and then you could move there. We did not go to Sequoia on our trip last fall since we'd be there before, but I think there is at least one campground there.

Wawona!

If you'd like to experience a grove of Sequoia redwoods, you could drive to Mariposa Grove, near Wawona campground. It's within Yosemite and approximately 45 minutes outside of the Valley.

Mariposa Grove - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

You don't have to move to different campgrounds. All of the "Pines" campgrounds are literally next to each other on the Valley floor.

Happy trails!
