Storms

For today I read about storms in Yosemite. Like Yosemite is grand so are its storms. Muir describes great floods, blizzards, avalanches, quakes and rockslides. One massive flood caused all the edges of the valley to become full of water fall. "In all the valley there must have been upwards of a hundred [waterfalls]" (Muir 57). These pictures are not of the time he describes, they are not even of Yosemite, but they are of a great waterfall the Iguazu Falls in Argentina. I visited there a few years ago and made these photos.


Muir also described a time when he got to ride an avalanche. He did point out the danger of the ride but I do not think he stressed it enough. I am sure it was an amazing experience but not one that I would look for.
