New Yosemite Nature Notes Video and Yosemite Gazette are out

Greg Stock, NPS

See the new Yosemite Nature Notes on Granite featuring Greg Stock, the Park Geologist. For a tad more, read Chapter 2 of “One Best Hike: Yosemite’s Half Dome.” I once tried to mildly get into the geology of the park, but it quickly gets overwhelming. There are so many types of rocks and fine points that I got lost very quickly. I think know enough to get by at a cocktail party.

The new issue of the Yosemite Gazette is now out and available.

 It’s a free publication, but subscriptions help out. I do a few articles for them and have one on the Panama Canal and the link to the Sierra. Really. What was going on here was a direct reason the canal ended up being built. Cool. We also are proud to announce that Leroy Radonovich is now submitting stories. He is “Mr Mariposa” and has a gigantic collection of archival photos to supplement his stories. He profiles the Mariposa Courthouse this issue. It’s the longest continuously operating courthouse in the state.

The 16-page quarterly is given out in the greater Yosemite region at libraries, visitor centers, dog kennels and jost houses. I get a couple boxes to spread around the south bay area. I put them in REIs when I am nearby. I can mail you a copy for the cost of postage. $2.00. Send me a PM if interested.
