News and views from the geologic realm
Doesn't quite seem to be the volume of water we saw there in April. But at least the gates are open until after 8pm these days.
You made it to Yosemite.
*bounces up and down, waving hand wildly*Ooh! ooh! I know! I know! Pick me, teach, pick *me!**beam*That's Tu-e-e-u-la-la falls, in Hetch Hetchy! "Dam Hetch-hetchy?"And just because I can, Eyjafjallajökull! *smug look*BTW, I spoke with Karen Powers, a geologist ranger here in Yosemite today, she told me that the table mountain on highway 41 is an "inverted valley", comprised of volcanic basalt. The surrounding mountains eroded away in the long-ago-time.
I'm goin' with Hetch Hetchy too - the flooded second Yosemite Valley that needs to be drained so it can heel for the next 100 yrs.
