Dear Yosemite. I love you.Thank you for sharing your endless epic views and waterfalls, your mirror lakes and mighty rivers, and your beautiful moss.

I wish you could hear it....

on the way up Yosemite Falls -- the highest waterfall in North America

mmmmm. moss.

edna's tree!

can you name this flower?

My camera stayed uncharacteristically packed away for much of this trip...I wanted to experience it fully.

Missing from these photos: good people around the campfire, the goodness of my first s'more, laying lizardly on the sun soaked granite rocks atop Yosemite Falls (with sounds of fellow hikers on their cell phones).

But most of all, I fell in love with the sound of a good winter in Yosemite, the all encompassing roar that begins so softly with the snow's melt and becomes big booming rainbow inducing waterfalls.

love at first sight...

i have so many photos from my AZ trip to post...but before I head out on my Yosemite adventure I had to post my favorite: me and my new cuz Silvia. She's just over a week old here--and I fell completely and totally in love.

Beautiful bike things...

I'm having fun getting around the city on my bicycle. So on this rainy day, instead of riding, I've been looking at beautiful bike things to make biking easier. Love these bags and racks!

spring is...

... baby bird watching. barn owls and perigrines.
... dreaming of my feet in the sand.
... wondering why Fridays are always so beautiful outside. It's painful. Feeling lucky for my long walk at lunch.
