Half Dome – Yosemite Musing

     I just got my 2010 WordPress report. This blog was viewed about 70,000 times in 2010. They said if it were an exhibit at The Louvre Museum, it would take 3 days for that many people to see it. Gosh.   In 2010, I wrote wrote 343 new posts, growing the total archive of this blog to 509 posts. I uploaded 555 pictures  that’s about 2 pictures per day. My  busiest day of the year was July 18th with 800 views. I have no clue why. The most popular post that day was Unused Half Dome permits. Thanks for your loyalty.

     My March REI presentation schedule is now out. Other months to follow. They are FREE.
March 8 at REI Fremont
March 16 at REI San Francisco
March 22 at REI Marina
March 24 at REI Brentwood

     Mark your calendar for these free admission days at Yosemite in 2011. Good idea to stay away – they will be jammed.
January 15-17 (Martin Luther King, Jr. Birthday weekend)
April 16-24  (National Park Week)
June 21 (First day of summer)
September 24 (Public Lands Day)
November 11-13  (Veterans Day weekend)

Unrelated thought worth quoting: “Sometimes, I’ll watch a movie that I watched when I was younger and suddenly realize I had no idea what the heck was going on when I first saw it.” – A wise old man

    I do enjoy your blog Rick…it’s a long way to Yosemite from Scotland but your wee snippets each day bring it a lot closer and it’s fun to keep up to speed even though I can’t visit the place as often as I’d like.

    The good news is that Yellowstone appears to have fallen out of favour with Mrs Dean, and so it’s looking good for another visit later this year and my third Half Dome hike.

    Happy New Year

    Tell Mrs Dean that I went to Yellowstone last year because I friend has wanted to go forever, so did this last year. I still prefer Yosemite!
