Alright, so I just spent the weekend in one of our national treasures - Yosemite National Park.. Absolutely beautiful place, any time of year. I've put the obvious picture inline with this message, the rest you can click on. I'd hate for someone w/ a slow connection to choke on this page.



The misty, verdant base of Bridalveil Falls

Iconic El Capitan, Ansel Adams style. Sorta.

A freaky-looking tree, low to the ground.

The even more iconic Half Dome.

Lower Yosemite Falls, a la Ansel.

LoYoFalls in glorious color.

Some TravelPunk nutjob on Mirror Lake.

I freaked some people out by walking right up to the wildlife to snap a pic...

I dunno about you, but i NEVER see living moss on trees in the snow.

Upper AND Lower Yosemite Falls.

The Yosemite Valley - only a small portion of the whole park, but arguably the most traveled to.

Glad you enjoyed, all

I've seriously got to go through all my travel photos and put an easy-to-navigate site together, but who has the time? We've got places to see!!

Oz - it's in central California, about a 4-hour drive southeast from San Francisco, roughly a similar distance northeast from Los Angeles. I highly recommend it to anyone visiting the West Coast!

" Takin' polaroid pictures that are never in focus
Just to look at when they finally slow down"

That song lyric always makes me think of exactly what you are saying. I take tons of travel pics then it takes a while for me to actually go through and sort them out until I hit a dead spot in between destinations.
