Come spend a night in the heart of the Sierra just outside Yosemite National Park at Yosemite Pines RV Resort and Family Lodging.

Photo of the Day: In the Shadows by Joe Dsilva

| April 23, 2012

Today’s Photo of the Day comes to us from Joe Dsilva who posted this awesome photo in the Yosemite Blog Group Pool on Flickr. What I really like about it though is the story Joe posted with it.

Another summer begins, well at least with weather, it’s been baking hot this weekend, that we had to postpone our soccer matches by an hour to escape the heat. And it was only couple of weeks back I was playing with my base layers on.

It signifies the beginning of another outdoor season, time to hit the trails, get more tan, shed those winter pounds, sweat and stink. Another year to renew the vows of masochistic rites of passage. Time to harden up the callous.

So here’s to the concluding backpack from last year, none other than the famous vogelsang lake treasured in the vast landscapes of Yosemite. 22 miles of treading the trails and solitude thanks to the fact that the high sierra camp was already dismantled for winter.

Stole the last rays of setting sun as it lit up the mountains. In a matter of minutes the entire light just disappeared. It will be dark and cold soon. We are in bear country.

Awesome stuff. Thanks for sharing, Joe.
