Year of Yosemite (YOY) – Day 86 (Blue Helmets)

Blue Helmets 
Blue Helmets Blue Helmets along the Four Mile Trail

While hiking the Four Mile Trail we were surprised to find blue helmets in two different locations. One helmet was placed on a ledge of rocks and another was resting in the middle of the trail.

We made an assumption that these were probably protective gear used by rescuers. We previously showed a locked metal case placed along the edge of the trail in one spot which we likewise assumed had rescue gear inside (see YOY DAY 47).

Other than the above conjectures, we don’t know what use these items might have in these particular locations. There was no rock climbing along this trail as far as we understood.
