Looking on the Bright Side
By John P. DeGrazio
Last week it rained for a couple days, and then it stopped. Soccer practice ended, and we were off. Making it to OMG Point is quite an adventure for a 4 year old who was up to the challenge. Sure, we hiked back with the aid of headlamps, but the memories and the burgers were worth it. Here’s a view of the setting sun from the point.
Yosemite and California are in desperate need of more precipitation. There is no doubting that fact. Last week’s storm helped but was just a proverbial drop in the bucket. This past weekend I had the opportunity to hike in Yosemite Valley in short sleeves during a very mild President’s weekend. It’s awkward to feel guilty for enjoying a Yosemite hike on a beautiful winter day, but if life throws you a can o peaches, you might as well enjoy them. Here is a panorama image I captured of El Capitan from the Merced River.
