Yosemite Time lapse

Half Dome – Yosemite Musing

While the east coast was getting covered in the white stuff, our Saturday hike up Fremont’s Mission Peak was a joy. Kinda cold and very foggy at 9 am, once we got above it, it was sweet. The whole SF Bay and surroundings were socked in with puffy clouds and it was the heaviest wind I’ve seen up top (2500 ft). We trucked on south another mile+ to Mt. Allison, a hundred feet higher and the home to a quad-zillion antennae. Thanks to all who came. We’ll do it again in January and I’ll announce it here.

San Franis that way

I found a neat video by Steve Baumgardner. He’s a videographer for the NPS and has done several that are on their website called “Yosemite Nature Notes”. This one is called “People in Yosemite: A Time Lapse Study.” It’s done in High Definition. Click <HERE> to see the VIMEO production. He also has a short background section. Kind fun – watch the human ants scurry about in high speed movement. Enjoy!

Unrelated thought worth quoting: “Only by going alone in silence, without baggage, can one truly get into the heart of the wilderness. All other travel is mere dust and hotels and baggage and chatter.” – John Muir,  July 1888
