That’s today’s word from the park. Anyones guess now. The temps are soaring so it willl all melt soon. Plan on muddy trails. All that water coming down could result in the Merced overflowing …. Crikey! What’s a mother to do?? Here is what the official “ticket” to hike look s like:
It looks like there are 3 sections… I dunno maybe one to tear off as you go up and one to tear off as you come back down. This will be interesting – if anybody ever actually gets to hike it this year! Gee, you may recall that I bought up a gob to hand out to folks at my talks … well now I have a drawer of tickets that are worthless … and am getting credit card refunds daily!
Unrelated thought worth quoting: “I think I’m gonna be sad, I think it’s today yeah. The girl that’s driving me mad is going away, yeah. She’s got a ticket to ride, she’s got a ticket to ride, she’s got a ticket to ride, but she don’t care.” – The Beatles
