I love to look at photos of the signage they used to have at Yosemite. Here’s a couple to share.
Note the CORRECT use of FALL vs FALLS. It’s Nevada Fall not Nevada Falls as some modern signs show. Ditto Vernal. Also, note the marking of the trail up to Sierra Point. It’s not even on modern maps. It’s a neat lookout that you can see 4 falls from. Can you name them? A rockfall messed up the trail so you have to scramble up a talus pile today. Access is hard but on the paved trail to Vernal you hang a left. There are some good guides if you google it. Watch out for rattlesnakes. But the railing is still up there. The Clarks Point sign is vintage.
I’m off to Phoenix in the never-ending pursuit of Carpe Diem. Going to do some hiking and see a spring training baseball game. Then drive down to Tombstone – the old cowboy town – Gun Fight at the OK Corral was there and Wyatt Earp is buried in boot hill. Neato. Forgive me if the blogs are a bit late.
I’m doing talk on May 19 – but not Half Dome. It’s business class that we are putting on in Santa Clara to help folks make money. We call it Expert Platform Building 101. A full day workshop on tactics to make money thru blogging, writing a book and speaking. Yes, for a fee, but very cheap before March 19…and good stuff. Laid off? Still looking? This might help. Free lunch! See the info <here>.
