Take a good look at this photo.
Hey! I said a GOOD LOOK. Memorize it. I had to pack a bunch of camera gear up the mountain at Yosemite to get this photo, so you damn well better appreciate it. This is called Vernal Falls. When I set out that morning, I had planned on hiking to both Vernal Falls and Nevada Falls. HAH! It was all I could do to get to Vernal Falls without having to have emergency crews hall my carcass off the hillside on a stretcher.
Some of the black things at the right that looks like trees growing through the rocks -- those are people.
The other pages have photos from my week-long, 1,760-mile trip through California in November 1999.
