MAY 2012

This is Bass Lake near the Southern
entrance to Yosemite.

Knarley old trees seem to catch my eye and when my wife and I were scouting rest stops around Bass Lake for a picnic I had to take a shot of this one. It also shows how low the Lake is which may be due tot he new hyro-electric plant going in.
 Just one of beautiful falls. This one may be famous.
Another of the falls in B+W. Interesting as well is the erosion of the bank when the water runs high. Think I would not want to be where I took this.
 My daughter and walked down the road a ways to get this framing of Half Dome.

 Pigeon Point Light Station. Hyw 1, CA  July 3, 2012
Another lighthouse stripped of its lens and in serious disrepair. It is thought so little of, that not even a flag can be raised on the station pole. Very sad.
 This view is looking back toward shore from a platform in front of the fog horn house.
The twin fog horn bells reaching toward the sea. This house will, at some point, house the real lighthouse lens that was removed from the lamp room. The light, still an official aid to navigation, was replace with something er ........ efficient.
