Off for a retreat this afternoon, one for which i feel decidedly unprepared. So it goes.

Next weekend Christine's sister is in town. I have just disappointed her by explaining that Tioga Road, which crosses through the high country of Yosemite, is closed for the winter. (Also, we are required to have chains in the car.) It's just dawn as i try to look at the park condition webcams and the larger views aren't opening. The text reports roughly quarter the average snowpack: such a sad drought!

I'm corresponding with a Bureau of Land Management botanist about flower displays a couple hours south of here. I hope to visit Panoche Hills and explore some weekend soon.
