Photo of the Day: 14th Cavalry in Yosemite

Today’s Photo of the Day is a really interesting photo Mark Holloway had posted to Flickr of the 14th Cavalry in Yosemite. If you read the writing you’ll notice it’s dated Summer 1909 and located near Camp Yosemite. For those who aren’t familiar with Yosemite’s history, the U.S. Cavalry was given the task of patrolling the park before the National Park Service was created. Still today you can find graffiti cut into the bark of trees from the passing horse soldiers.

Pretty cool stuff. That’s for sharing that on your photostream Mark.
