    ... park was created way too late to save many of the trees it was supposed to. And the decision later to expand the borders of the park in the 70's led to frantic wholesale clearcut logging of the trees before it became too late for the logging companies to get the money out of the hills. Just recently it was discovered that the tallest tree so far (379ft !! ) and named Hyperion was ...

    ... we have a draft party at our house with a bloody bar and the nacho cheese machine but it was going to be different this year, up until a couple of weeks prior we were unsure where we would even be drafting from.

    ... of the Giants as the redwoods are called, and yes they sure make this 6fter seem tiny!
    I just wanted to sit and meditate amongst this beauty, but no a loud family came along talking at the top of their voices to dispel any solitude I had been seeking.

    ... They pronounce it Yo-sem-min-nee. As if the 't' is an 'n'. Like the cartoon gunslinger from the old Bugs Bunny cartoons - 'Yosemite Sam'. (I am really showing my age)
    The next day we drove through Yosemite Park. The park itself is much smaller than Death Valley but the mountains, the cliffs, the bluffs are much more spectacular. It is really something to see and I hope the pictures do it justice. We decided to head north on ...
