Lots of astounding geological wonders I'm dying to tell you all about - if only I could access the Internet with any dependability. Woe is me!
It was truly hotter than hell in Death Valley! Would you believe 116 degrees Fahrenheit?!
And I'm still not convinced we didn't take a wrong turn and end up on another planet entirely when we arrived at Mono Lake just in time for a beautiful sunset and a very macabre landscape.
Yosemite is as mighty as they come; the last hundred thousand or so years were a bit rocky, but in an amazing way.
That was my preview of coming attractions. When Mother Nature finishes with center stage, I'll be back in the office.
Words alone cannot begin to do these natural wonders justice, so I'll just stick to exploring, try to keep several steps ahead of the bears, and report back when I return to civilization, i.e. a reliable Internet connection.
Gotta run! See a bear coming. This one looks a lot like my Jimmy.
