Trees, Water, Stone

The ocean that all this water is so eager to reach is a long way off.  If mountain snow had a brain the Tree and Rock would think it lost when they heard Snow’s plan for the sea.

It is not the nature of trees to think they belong somewhere else.  And rocks may actually be dumber than bricks.  Hard to tell.  Put them together and it is paper, scissors, stone on a grand scale.

On this particular evening the very stubborn water continues it’s escape over the rock wall and down the pine alley.  Earnestly seeking a salty ocean the state of California will never allow it to reach.

The government has also decided the road through Yosemite Valley should take the form of a “one way” loop in and out of the park.  An idea that surely prevents many accidents.  It also means the parking area where this was filmed is not reached until you are on your way out.  And it is not clear on the approach that it will be worth pulling over.  Many do not.

Their visit is over and they are on their way home.  Like the Sierra Snow, determined to return to the place they came from.  Please join me now for two minutes of water’s beautifully, determinedly, hopeless search for the sea.

    Paul and Karen:

    You really know how to capture the absolute essence of this beautiful Yosemite world. I love the time of day of this one that illuminates the pink in the granite. When I think of all I would have missed witnessing without your camera being there it makes me very grateful that you share these SlowTV videos. And, oh the mighty Merced.
