To Jim and Kathleen /uberlanders

To Jim and Kathleen,
I really sincerity apologize for what I said.
I send a e-mail too the Jordans stating that. I had no idea that
all of you were old friends. I thought you were being mean to her,
but I was very wrong. I am new to this net and dont know
anybody, really.---Boy I wont do that again. Roger/55inyo.

Kathleen,
I apologize I had no idea that all you guys were
old friends just having fun. I have done the same thing myself with
friends that I know. I had no idea that you-all knew each other. I am
sorry I reacted like that. I thought you were a bad person with no
compassion. Now I realize how wrong I was. I am a Dowist that
believes that the path to life is ones ability to obtain true or pure
divinity. Sorry about what I said roger/55inyo -kf6pld retired veteran.

This thread is bookmarked for me because of its beautiful tributes to a park we have yet to see, but dream of enjoying some autumn time. Thanks for all the stories and points to remember about living in bear territory too. 55inyo, how nice of you to publish your apology We all stub our toes on the forum from time to time. After a while, you'll also be more familiar with "friends" and recognize the real from the play. Welcome to our forum, and we hope you'll continue to read, enjoy, and share. ~G

Its all good. It is hard to know in this online village what things mean sometimes, especially when we don't have the benefit of body language and facial expressions. Thanks for your words.

Yosemite is extremely beautiful. I hope you have an opportunity to visit sometime soon! I suggest that when you do you try the spring or fall... the summer is pretty hectic and very crowded with people, huge tour busses lined up and kids everywhere! In the fall or spring ("off season") things are much quieter and you get a better chance to actually "see" nature. If it is early spring some things may not be open and the same is true of late fall.

Heading out to Yosemite in about a week! Goodie!

My next favorite park is Yellowstone! Wonderful place as well. Very different, but a real gem.

Thanks!

Hey thanks everyone!

I appreciate the tolerance and patience! Besides, some folks might think I am a little weird about the "bear thing".... but I love my little Airstream and don't want bear claws coming through the aluminum!

For me it has always been snakes, bears, and some spiders....

But, back to the Yosemite ideas! Anyone have a favorite spot there? I used to love Happy Isle in the summer, we would take the kids there for ice cream... it disappeared in the flood a couple of years ago.... sure looks different now!

I hope to post some pics when we return!

Can't miss El Capitan!

Oh, there's so much to do and see! One fun thing to do is to take a blanket and a good pair of binoculars to El Capitan meadow in the valley. As you lay there, looking up at the sheer rock wall, look for tiny (and I mean tiny!) climbers scaling the face. If you look hard and long enough, you're bound to see at least one or two. If it's quiet, you can even hear them talking to each other. This past weekend, we went after the sun went down and saw three separate tiny lights waaaaay up on the rock. Amazing.

If you want to see a different view of Yosemite, try a hike to Dewey or Taft points off the Glacier Point road. Each about 2 hours round trip and not too difficult. Astounding views from above the valley - a whole new perspective.

I know you'll have a great time. It's a beautiful time of year to go and you'll miss so much of the craziness that goes on over the summer months. Yosemite has had a hold on me too since I first visited so long ago. Being there, especially in the off season when it is more peaceful, makes me humble.

Many years ago when I was getting around in my split window VW Bus. I would drive up to Yosemite on Friday night after school was out. I'd arive late and it would be pich black. On one of these occasions I awoke in the morning to an amazing silence. When I looked outside there was 5 inches of new snow covering the valley. Needless to say it had snowed during the night. I got up and used up 3 rolls of 35mm film. Beauty gones in many smiles.

A few years back, when I bought my first digital camera ( Canon G5 ) I had to take it out and play with it. So I left work early on Friday and drove up to Yosemite. It started raining in Mariposa and rained hard all through the night.

Out to the meadows at sunrise, alone, drinking coffee, watching the storm clear and playing with the new camera.

Great photo, looks like the trees were beginning to turn colors. I love the fall there, a group of us used to go up to Yosemite every October after the schools were back in session - much less crowded then!

I agree- October is spectacular- turning leaves, apples in the orchard, the smell of campfire smoke (do they still allow that- maybe not?), not so many folks, cool nights for sleeping, glorious days!! Oh how I wish I were going there this October- will have to settle for living 1 mile from Rocky Mountain Nat. Park I guess... you guys have fun!!-tim

Well tomorrow morning I hook up the trailer. Claudia stacks in the last of the food. And we're off. Maybe will have a few pictures to post on the next photo contest.
Happy trails, Don
