October Views from Pothole Dome

October is one of my favorite times in the Yosemite high country. The mornings are frosty and the meadow plants are all bright green-yellow, russet, and purple-red. The trails are nearly empty, and the whole landscape seems relieved that another summer of frantic tourist activity is over.  These views are from a stroll across Pothole Dome one very windy October morning.
