  3. I love the gorgeous images on your blog – I get it as a daily digest and it’s a nice surprise every day to see the pictures. I just wanted to point out, though, that Yosemite is not in Humboldt County – it’s inland in Tuolumne, Mariposa, and Madera counties. Humboldt is on the north coast.

  4. Pretty awe-inspiring!

  5. I was so entertained by these pictures! Thanks for posting them!

  6. Painfully sad are these photos. Deaths chronicled.
