Leaving the bay area, we drove for one last visit to Yosemite. It really was a drive through one last time to salute the Captain, smell a tree and maybe see a bear or other such wildlife. The sad fact is that this park is hugely populated with cars. These signs are everywhere, and I'm sad to report this bear might have been the casualty of some crazy driver in the park. Of course any wildlife viewing causes major traffic jams, and this was no exception. If you go get there EARLY.

Moving kids around the country.
Life in the fast lane of youth, can't always be accomplished without the mom around to help drive. That was me a week or so ago. First, Chelsea, DD #2 had to move from the USGS to start her Master Degree work, in geology, at the University of New Mexico. So off I flew to San Francisco to help move her/drive her to said destination. Jennifer, DD #1 took the opportunity to come up a few days early to enjoy the last few days of Chelsea in California.
