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.

El Capitan on a Cloudless Day by John P. DeGrazio

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.
