Some activities are everywhere


I have two activities I want to show you today that I saw everywhere I went in Yosemite. The first is, that plants grow everywhere and anywhere in Yosemite. This bush is growing between two rocks with nothing but an inch of dirt for its roots but lots of water for nourishment.

Looking at the visitor statistics over the years, I estimate that well over one trillion pictures have been taken in and of Yosemite. I saw photographs being taken of people in front of trees, in front of rocks, in front of falling water, in front of running water, in restaurants, in hotels, in parking lots. Some people even took pictures without people in them. I guess they had extra film.

Where has your picture been taken in Yosemite?
