birthday at mono lake

Sorry about the absence of posts. things are busy as usual; probably the same story for everyone. this week we're in the magnificent yosemite valley after a picturesque week in mono lake. Next week is an off week, which hopefully means some kayaking. More than likely i'll be fixing the car for the first half: need new calipers and pads on the front brakes again.
Fixing the car isn't so beautiful, but I did spend my birthday in quite a beautiful location. Here is the serene and mysterious 'Dead Sea of California', Mono Lake:

Then it was a short drive over Tioga pass and into Yosemite for a week; Shanna working as a naturalist, myself as the cook.

Here is the screaming facial profile of the legendary Miwok Indian woman, Tissiak, known to pale face as Half Dome:

I hope to have more up some, especially some shots of the upcoming car maintanence. Lots of love to everyone.

a happy birthday card for dommy

I would like to wish my cousin Dominique a happy 2nd birthday. I hope you have a good party; maybe we'll get some photos up from the festivities. For now all the best from me in California to you in North Carolina. I look forward to seeing you again in November.
Much love, Mefford.

training in the dirt

Well, we've been on big training missions for Naturalists at Large. Part of which included some high ropes course training.

I also spent some time up high after clambering around on similar phone poles.

Our views from up high were quite nice even in the blasting hot California sun.

Stay tuned for a more substantial update on resource and training days, soon.
