I Love My T.D. Willey Box!

I always look forward to Thursday afternoons when I pick up my T.D. Willey Box which is dropped off at Nature’s Nutrients in Oakhurst. It is filled with wonderfully fresh locally grown organic vegetables and fruit, most picked 24 hours from delivery of my box. I always have a pretty big garden in the summer but haven’t grown much in ...

It’s in an “active adult retirement community” with fitness gyms, pools, library, hiking and photography clubs, and much more. The scenery is ...

4 Mile Trail to Glacier Point & Sentinel Dome Hike

I once heard the 4 Mile Trail described as a three hour long Stairmaster session from start to finish. We accomplished that plus a bonus hike up to Sentinel Dome for views of snow covered Half Dome and other surrounding peaks. And, we were the only people up at Glacier Point, which is normally pretty crowded in the summer!

Yosemite Valley Color

A few days ago I posted some roadside color taken on the drive to the Valley, where I walked to Mirror Lake and explored the Valley a little. It was a misty day and unusually quiet and empty of people (like it used to be when I came in the fifties.)
