Here are some photos from my grandparents (Peter Stoner and Edith Forrey) from their camping trip to Yosemite in July of 1917. Unfortunately, they are a bit faded, being over 100 years old. My grandfather taught school, and had summers off, so they usually went on a camping trip somewhere.
Thanks to the generosity of Rob Neff, I now have much clearer photos. I am leaving one of the old copies in, for comparison.
I cannot identify everyone in the above photo, due to the poor quality. My grandfather is seated, 2nd adult from the right, holding a child, which looks too large for his daughter. His brother's and sister's families appear to be here, also.
Now that I have the clearer copy, I can identify, left to right: child Paul Stoner, his mother Ethel, his sister Edith, his brother Henry, his cousin John Secrist, Paul's father George Stoner, John's sister Mae Secrist, I'm not sure with her back to us (might be my great grandma Julia Forrey), my grandfather Peter holding someone else's kid, and someone else I can't recognize. Much better!
Here is a giant sequoia with one of the family cars driving through it. This is probably the Wawona tree, in Mariposa grove. I believe I saw this same tree when I went to Yosemite when I was a child, around 1967. It fell in a storm in 1969. There are several coast redwoods between Legget and Eureka, on Hwy. 101, that you can still drive through.
Here's another Rob fixed for me...
