Due to the government shutdown, I thought I would post some photos of the U.S. Department of the Interior which are closed to visitors today, namely, Yosemite National Park. Isn’t it bizarre? I’m not going to get into the whole political thing here (thank goodness, I’m sure you’re thinking) but it’s sad that it happened and what it says about our political system. Anyway, these are from a few years back, but I hope to return soon – it really is spectacular.
This is at Tuolumne Meadows with a view of the waterfalls.
Below is the reward for a 6 hour round trip hike from White Wolf Campground. Found out from a fellow hiker that a bear was following me the whole way. Not sure why he waited until the end of the hike to tell me…Ah, ignorance is bliss.
By the way, did you know that they have an official Instagram account? You can follow them at usinterior.
I used to work as a park ranger for the BLM (part of the Dept. of Interior) and met some of the nicest, smartest, most hard-working people ever while I was there.
