Half Dome – Yosemite Musing
Last month we talked about the round markers that the US Geological Survey places on high peaks. This one is on top of Cloud’s Rest.
I asked yall to look around on top of Half Dome for one. I’ve never seen one. Below is what I bought at the gift shop. At first blush, it looks legit,but closer examinations reveals it’s probably just a “paper weight.” I’ve never seen one on Half Dome. But why not? Seems like it should have one. Let me know if you run into it. The coordinates on it read: N37 44 46 W119 31 55. Bring your GPS and do some scouting.
Unrelated thought worth quoting: “Mock (yeah) ing (yeah) bird (yeah) Yeah, yeah. Mockingbird everybody, have you heard? He’s gonna buy me a Mockingbird. If that Mockingbird don’t sing, he’s gonna buy me a diamond ring. And if that diamond ring don’t shine, he’s gonna surely, break this heart of mine.” – Inez & Charlie Foxx
