    Just got back from a week in Yosemite National Park. The tremendous amount of late season precipitation...resulting in the largest snowpack measurements (historically) on 1 June...has produced a water wonderland in the Valley. Just posting a few of the pictures I took on my morning runs there....this one of Bridal Veil Falls (you can see the mist at the top....for you meteorologists, they were actually mist vortices....small whirlwinds in the mist caused by the wind channelled through the cliffs).

    Also, had a ball trying out my Garmin 305cx wrist watch (with GPS). This thing tracks you and produces detailed logs....you can see the results of my run up the steep canyon;s Mist Trail to Vernal Falls.
