Yosemite 2008!

We're back from the fall camping trip to Yosemite Valley.
The boys had a great time, made some new friends and got
lots of hiking and exploring in. While there, we heard the
rockfall from Glacier Point (above Curry Village)

Sounded like the trash truck was up early that morning
(6:45am or so?) but then it kept going, and you could hear
the rushing sound (wind) after the main thunder sound went
away. We were camped all the way at the far end of Upper Pines
(about 200yards from the Happy Isles trail head area. My
thoughts immediately went back to the 1996 rockfall that wiped out
that area,
and how close we were camped to that spot, then the 1999 rockfall that took the life of a young climber. Yikes!
