video
After Breakfast, peddled over to the Library..found the book, Joy of Yosemite...thought it great luck, then checked the Bookstore, and they have it too!....bought two...one for my Library friend!...picked up mail, then stopped in the Gallery to see if they carried a bigger gorilla pod (small flexible camera tripod)...and they do, so bought one...and a little camera umbrella gadget....spent too much money...but back at the Cabin was entertained trying to figure out yet more ways to attach the waterproof camera to the scope...got it all together and sorta working...gathered all the gear and paddled out to Creek's End...set it up...took faraway pics of bolts on Chapel Bridge to see how things might go...everything too unsteady...but I have some more ideas..for tomorrow...ate lunch at Owl Log...egg salad, grape cranberry....picked up, and just as I started into the Woods in the Diversion Channel...Red Tail Hawk flew up from the gravel, and perched in a Ponderosa...pic...tried to get close, but Hawk flew off, but was calling...after a lot of Tree to Tree with no luck, finally found Hawk high in the Cottonwood...clip...but no pic...Hawk flew off again...calling...followed out to Two Top Pine Meadow, and heard Hawk over in Chapel Meadow...workmen had Swinging Bridge closed, so headed back to the Cabin for the bicycle...peddled back to the Scorched Forest..Chickaree pic....thought to wait for sunset...maybe hear Owl....report of Owls thereabout ....but decided to go back to Owl Woods..feel more at home thereabout!...Woods quiet ...Ouzel at Creek's End...Two Does and Fawn by the Merced, and Mama Doe and Two Fawns on the far side of the River...almost dark, and came upon Buck while crossing back through the Woods...took scenics out in Two Top...oh...Ground Squirrel on Owl's Old Oak in the Oak Grove...pic and clip up...sunny warm blue...the Michaels took a lot of 16mm film of the Park...this in the 1930s...haven't seen the dvd yet...review for sometime soon!!!
