yosemite

i’ve been a lame blogger lately. i have many thoughts i’d like to blog about, but haven’t found the time. hopefully, i’ll get back on in the saddle in the days and weeks to come.

in the mean time, here’s a little photo survey of our camping trip to yosemite this past week:

the first two days were warm and beautiful, and we did a lot of this…

and saw stuff like this (a rock slide that closed off a portion of the “mirror lake trail”)…

and breathtaking views like this…

but on our third day, it turned very cold, and rained the entire day and night, and we had to construct this…

we tried to stay warm at night by doing this…

then, on the fourth morning, we woke up in 20 degree weather to 6 inches of snow, and it looked like this…

and this…

we found an empty lounge at the historic ahwahnee lodge, and stayed warm by doing this…

even though it was crazy-cold for tent camping, the scenery was awe-inspiring, like this…

and this…

as we left on the sixth day, with easter on our minds, it was cool to anchor that thinking to the creation-impulses of our god, which are fairly tricky to miss with views like this…

wave art

these photos are stunning. they were taken by a former surfer in hawaii who has spent years finding the perfect spot and technique for taking photos of cresting waves. a few of the pics in the gallery show the photographer in his element, which, frankly, looks like some freaky stuff!

a snippet from the guardian (UK), which had a piece on the photographer (a guy named clark little):

After Clark stepped away from the incredible thrill of going big at Waimea, he realized that he longed to be back in his element. Clark has returned ot various North Shore shorebreaks to capture the beauty and power of these monstrous waves from the inside out. What he has achieved through the lens of his camera are images never seen by those who reside on land.
