It was July 19 when 3 young people from th3 Central Valley went over Vernal Fall. Only one body has been recovered from the 317 ft drop. The Rangers search every Thursday from 7 am until noon. The lower Mist Trail is closed during that period. Historically, about 20% of people who drown at Yosemite are never found. One man is still missing from the drowning at a Hetch Hetchy this summer. Here is the photo of the 2 missing hikers. If you see anything suspicious in the river let authorities know. Hike safely.  Click to enarge.

Last Saturday I gave a talk at the Oakland Museum of California. As past of the John Muir exhibition, I spoke of Muir and Half Dome. He was the 9th person up to the top. George Anderson showed him how to get up the rope an John did the rest – alone.

Unrelated thought worth quoting: “Between every two pines is a doorway to a new world.” ― John Muir
