Facelift

The Yosemite Climbing Assn sponsors an annual park trash clean up. They call it the Facelift. This year it runs Sep 20 – 25. It kicks off on Tuesday September 20th at the Visitor Center at 7:00 pm. The actual cleanup will start at 8:00 am on Wednesday September 21st and continue through Sunday September 25th. Volunteer sign-up will be at the booth in front of the Visitor Center.  I think only real climbers can volunteer to police the base of Half Dome (Helmets advised). In the past they have found a ton of bottles, cameras and anything that follows the law of gravity.

Bad weather continues

Forecast is for up to a 50% chance. Thunderstorms are fun to watch … but don’t be near Half Dome. Nice week to read a book, visit the Museum, or study the dioramas at the Visitor Center. Sorry.

Carpe Diem hunt – yet again

Unrelated thought worth quoting: “Science fiction, double feature. Doctor X will build a creature. See androids fighting – Brad and Janet. Anne Francis stars in Forbidden Planet. At the late night, double feature, picture show.” – Rocky Horror Picture Show
