Long hike up Lyell Canyon—forests and meadows with a few views.  Saw a black snake with yellow lengthwise stripes—around 3 ft. long slither off the trail.  Passed lots of backpackers and a few day hikers.  Arrived at the end of the flat part of the valley to camp at 9000 ft. around 2:30.  Tomorrow we exit Yosemite over Donohue Pass.
