I have no clue where Waldo is …but Mr Half Dome sits near Sun Valley Idaho on a wet Harley. The band of gypsies intended to get to Yellowstone…but the ice machine in the sky is dumping stuff.
Rain and snow showers along with isolated thunderstorms will increase over the area late Saturday night and Sunday with snow levels near 9000 feet. Significant rainfall is possible Sunday into Sunday night.
Bummer. So we head west through Idaho and to Oregon to stay dry and warm. Good thing I brought my full rain suit. Well, I know Yosemite is best. My next hike up Half Dome is July 4. It sure would be neat to fire off Roman Candles form the top. Actually back on July 3, 1904 Jack Kelsey, Milton Main, Lester Jordan carried dynamite up Half Dome and set it off. From the SF Chronicle:
“We tried our dynamite and were amply rewarded for our risk in bringing it by the echoes resounding back and forth from dome to dome. We followed with Roman candles, skyrockets and red fire, and went to sleep contended with our celebration of the Fourth near the top of the world”.
Unrelated thought worth quoting: “It’s never too late to become what you might have been.” -George Elliot
