Looks like you had a great time. I can't wait to get there and see it for myself. The storm aftermath pic is awesome.
Thanks for sharing your adventure.

It was a great time. We were camped right next to you in the Eagle Cap. You have a nice rig and wanted to talk to you about your rear step handrail. Did you make that?


I wished you had stopped by to say hello but maybe it's better that you didn't. My wife and I were both sick that weekend, but what better place to recuperate.

The hand rail is made by Brophy. I didn't use their bracket to attach it to the back of my camper. I wasn't excited about drilling more holes in the back. So instead I fabricated a bracket to attach it to the Outfitter hand hold. The hand rail really stiffens up the stairs and makes them feel more secure.

Thanks for posting the photos and trip report. I have been in Yosemite every month of the year. I have seen it like you just experienced, empty with no one hardly around. It is hard to believe that you are in Yosemite. Thanks again!

What great fortune to have such a spectacular place to yourselves, and for having a spouse who has the good sense to suggest a TC trip for their birthday! I'll bet the bears are confused about where everybody is. Thanks for sharing the trip and pics.
