Yosemite Falls beyond the Merced River (March 2013)

Back in 1994 we spent a few nights camping in Yosemite with friends. The catch was that to get the camping sites we agreed to do some service in the park. Our project was to plant saplings along the Merced River in this spot to prevent erosion of the banks of the river. The trees were just a few feet tall, at most, when we planted them.

Fast forward nearly 20 years to our next visit to Yosemite and we got to see that our saplings had grown into these 20-30 feet high trees.

This is an often neglected view in the Painted Hills landscape. While everyone can’t look away from the main attraction, a simple look over your shoulder reveals the above.

In the summer of 2017 I went on an awesome bike tour of Stockholm courtesy of Tor and Kerstin Simonsson of Stockholm Cykel. Two of us signed up. The other person, who I didn’t know, couldn’t ride a bike so it was just me and Tor. Tor was awesome. The bike was excellent. Unlike a typical bike tour, where you are “stuck” with a bunch of other tourists going to the same places as everyone else doing a bike tour, Tor’s tour avoided most of the touristy spots and was very personal.

Today’s photo comes from part of our ride. I’ve been to Stockholm three times, and 99% of what I saw on this tour I had never seen before. Highly recommended.
