In The Shadow Of Half Dome

Posted by B. Thomas (Arlington, Texas, United States) on 12 February 2018 in Animal & Insect.

Late in the afternoon some deer graze in a meadow with Half Dome in the background. They don't seem impressed with the view.

* About 3 years ago Hubby/Sherpa/Guide and I went on a trip to Yosemite National Park. We also went to Monterey and San Francisco, and then other trips soon after. I had so many photos that I only posted a few from Yosemite at the time, and had planned to get back to them. So, here are the forgotten photos.

Lovely. The locals never are impressed, right? They see it all the time, it's just home. (Kidding, of course, they are only deer). But it does bring to mind Eva Cassidy's (may she rest in peace) song, Pennies to My Name. One lines goes, "Strangers say this mountain here is beautiful beyond compare, But it's just a dumb old mountain; I see it every day."

I fully agree with Beach's comment, and had he not posted it, I would have said pretty much the same ...
