Just a Regular Day on Sentinel Dome
Just a picture today, of an entirely normal day hike up Sentinel Dome on the brink of Yosemite Valley. Well, ok, not an ordinary day. My wife and I got to witness the largest rock fall in Yosemite this year, and then as we made our way down the granite dome, we saw a huge bird (I presume a Redtailed Hawk; I'm open to corrections) perched in a tree at the edge of the cliff. It seemed rather unconcerned about our presence, and I guess was waiting for an unwary chipmunk to come wandering about. I've photographed hawks before, but not from twenty feet away. It was a beautiful creature!
