Outstanding three dimensionality without overdoing it. Well done.

frogfish - The dump we were heading to is really a dump (actually a landfill transfer point). We've been spring cleaning and had two loads of junk we were tossing out, with plans to spend the day cleaning and organizing. It was just on an off-chance that I checked for room at Bass Lake for the night. When I saw there had been a cancellation, I jumped on it because I had been hoping to get to Yosemite this year for the waterfalls.

The wonderful trip this past weekend is making up for our disaster today. Our roof was damaged this winter and we've been working for a month trying to get the replacement roof scheduled. The demo crew took off the roof this morning and didn't tarp it. We arrived home this evening to rain, wet carpet and a wet bed. It's no longer raining now - instead we're watching the trees fill up with snow. Panic call and the roofer is back putting up a tarp, shoveling snow off of the roof (don't think he's ever shoveled snow before).

I know. Just my strange sense of humour.

3" of snow in May?

I lived with a leaky roof for some years, so I feel your pain.

Very sorry to hear about your roof problems. I replaced the roof on our house a few years ago, and that quickly eliminated any thoughts of ever becoming a roofer. But at least I was diligent about covering the unfinished portion with a tarp. Best of luck!

Thanks for the compliments on the Yosemite photos, it is indeed a magical place.

The interior damage ended up being less than it might have been - the fact the rain changed to snow and the quick response by the roofer to shovel the snow and put up a tarp made a difference. Most of the carpet has already dried mostly, still a few damp spots but not too bad (luckily it's been sunny and the humidity has gone back down to our normal dry conditions). I've left the heat turned up (I'm not looking forward to the gas bill!) and it looks like I'll be able to only have to replace the carpet in the bathroom. A huge relief.

Forgot to mention with the original pictures - there's a trail that switchbacks up the valley floor to the top of Yosemite Falls. It's one you can hike, no technical climbing needed - I think it's something like 4 miles going uphill without a break. The summer I graduated from college I hiked that trail to the top of the falls. I remember the amazing views and sense of accomplishment - but now I think I was just plain crazy.
