Yosemite

I have visited a heck of a lot of National Parks in my lifetime, from Ecuador to Poland, Scotland to Australia. I have worked in National Parks throughout Malaysia. I have seen some of the most wonderful things that the earth has to offer us...And I can still say wow at what nature and millions of years of evolution has wrought.
Heard in the Park:
Teacher talking to students mentions saving the planet, value of recycling, being green, etc.
Student mutters to fellow student: "Save the planet; recycle homework."

You have a good eye for great photos. Wow it is!

I would be interested to know if you have spotted any bald eagles in the wild. I heard that they were close to extinction.

Wonderful photos as usual Glenda, thanks. Re bald eagles, this is a quote from a website: On June 28, 2007 the Interior Department took the American bald eagle off the Endangered Species List. The bald eagle will still be protected by the Migratory Bird Treaty Act and the Bald and Golden Eagle Protection Act. The Bald Eagle Protection Act prohibits the take, transport, sale, barter, trade, import and export, and possession of eagles, making it illegal for anyone to collect eagles and eagle parts, nests, or eggs without a permit. Native Americans are able to possess these emblems which are traditional in their culture.
