2000 Yosemite Institute Field Trip


On November 5-10, 2000, our students went to Yosemite National Park. This trip was conducted through the Yosemite Institute. We stayed at Camp Curry in Yosemite Valley from Sunday through Thursday, then moved to Camp Wawona for Thursday and Friday.

This site contains an "album" that consists of 147 photographs in both a Web (HTML) format and Adobe Acrobat (PDF) format. There is also a "scrapbook" of the photos and the individual images are available one-at-a-time.

--Most photographs by Michael Diggles, USGS.

Images in Web (HTML) Format

An "album" is provided here as an HTML file. It consists of the 147 photographs with captions. Each image is just 4"x6" and will take only a slightly long time to load. The file sizes, are about 30-50 KB which is nice and small. If you click on any 4"x6" image, in all but a couple images it will bring up a larger version (14" wide or 10" high). Use your browser's "Back" button to return to the album. The color "palate" contains 16.7 million colors which is plenty of colors.

The "album" is provided here as an Adobe Acrobat PDF file (album.pdf). It is the same collection of photographs but each image is 1024 pixels wide or 768 pixels high so they will fill most large screens.
