Had an 'awesome' day yesterday in Yosemite National Park
My personal highlight was driving around another treacherous corner to suddenly see Half Dome appear in the distance. Having taught about it to my A level students for the past 10 years I felt truly inspired to see this astonishing Batholith up close. The pictures from my phone don't do it justice and I can't wait to get the ones off my main camera embedded into my tectonic landforms PowerPoint!
Saw a variety of wild life including deer and a coyote. Also had the ignoble experience of watching two happy children transform into 2 very upset cold handed children after making too many snowballs without gloves on. The harmony of the surrounding mountain beauty was shattered!?
