Had to make this political didn't you.  Regarding the discussion on Global warming and the sequoia's, do you think maybe the 38 million people that live in California have anything to do with water usage?  That's up from about 4 million in 1920 and I'm not even counting the increased population in surrounding states.  I agree with Mark's comment also, not what I expected or wanted to see.

I know Yosemite and this is not the show I'd like to see. I'd like to re-experience the 49-mile High Sierra Camp Loop: Toulumne Meadows to Glen Aulin to May Lake to Sunrise to Merced Lake to Vogelsang and return to Toulumne Meadows.

See http://www.yosemitepark.com/high-sierra-camp-trail-descriptions.aspx.

I've been on all of the trails described there many times. What I'd really enjoy is a 2 hour IMAX movie of the High Sierra Loop. I'm now 67 years old and living in Ohio, so I'm unlikely to ever experience the Yosemite back country again except vicariously.
