Half Dome – Yosemite Musing
The long weekend is almost upon us. Yall find a parade and celebrate Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. Free park admission. I don’t know if he ever made it to Yosemite but I’m sure he would have loved it. As mentioned before, I’ll be in Sonora with Sister Kathy (The Hiking Nun) this weekend. A BIG day Saturday with 2 talks at St Patrick’s Church Hall. 10 am and 2 pm. Drop in and give me a listen if you are up there. We’ll be doing some snow shoeing on Sunday. Weather looks like it will be a bell ringer. My Bed and Breakfast does have wifi so check in over the weekend for my award-worthy blogs.
Today we have photos. I found these on the World Wide Web and can’t believe it. The people went up the cables when they were not yet in their support poles late spring last year. In November ’06 and April ’07 two athletic women did the same and lost their grip – the rock was damp and they slipped and are now pushing up daisies. Hmm doesn’t the circle with the slash thru it mean DON’T ?? Darwin Award nominees? Click to enlarge.
