Packing My Haul Bag in Yosemite, early 1970s
Camp 4, Yosemite Valley, early 1970s.
At that time there were no camp sites, or a real parking lot. Camp 4 was, and still is, known as the campground for rock climbers. We all felt that the park service wanted to keep us out of sight. I guess they didn't want a whole bunch of long hair, dusty and unshaven, climbers to be seen by the clean-cut tourists; it would have been bad for business.

Thank you very much, Charles. I wish I could have kept the little car. It would have been a museum piece.
cheers, Marc

Nice shot. My first car was a 1973 VW Beetle. Sold it out in LA for a thousand bucks in the 1983. Was in Yosemite in the 60's and 70's with my parents. Good memories!

Thanks Woodswalker. My Bug was already old when I bought it in the early 70s. But, that poor thing took me everywhere I wanted to go. When I sold mine it paid only enough to buy insurance for my new car. Like you said, "Good Memories!"

Great shot. Owned a number of them (usually just to keep one running) and camped out of them a lot. Even took out the rear and passenger seats decked the interior in plywood and custom cut a pad for diagonal sleeping for the relief driver.

Great story Foster! Thanks.
No, for me this was my only bug. That's only because my old climbing buddy was a VW mechanic, as well as being a chemist, who could keep it running and trouble shoot on the road.
