Yosemite Trip - 2005 - jfriend
This is the Merced River on the way to Yosemite.  It was unusually high water with major rapids.  We stayed in a hotel in Merced the night before and drove up highway 140 which runs along the Merced River all the way from Merced to Yosemite valley.  This is the river that flows through Yosemite valley and is fed by all the waterfalls.
