humor, recovery, horseracing, kvetching, spirituality ... or whatever's on my mind, one day at a time.

Quick Hop Up to Yosemite
It's been about three and a half years since I visited Yosemite, so it was high time for another visit. I used to go at least once or twice a year. I always get re-grounded there. The granite walls of the Valley are so mammoth that I'm reminded how small I really am, how quickly my own lifetime will pass in relation to the millions of years it took for a glacier to carve out the Valley, how small we all are in relation to the whole--but together, the Whole becomes an Enormous Thing.
Seeing deer, coyotes, and bears isn't uncommon in Yosemite, but this time we were treated to a bobcat that ran across the trail.
Description can never do Yosemite Valley justice, so I'll just let the photos speak for themselves.
