This past week I made my annual pilgrimage to Yosemite.  Because of the drought the waterfall flow is less than normal, but it made no difference.  The extraordinary unparalleled beauty of that wonder of nature was undiminished.

We are lucky to have Yosemite only a four-hour drive away.  It is awesome, for sure.  It also serves to put us in our place.  What we see took millions of years to create.  It is a gift to behold, and we should be grateful for the gift.

Ken Burns’ series on our national parks was called “America’s Best Idea.”  Every time I enter Yosemite National Park I realize how accurate that appellation is.
