Eternal Yosemite

One of my favorite places on all the earth is Yosemite National Park. Lots of other people say the same thing. Hence every year someone writes the following headline: The People’s Playground: Will Yosemite’s popularity be its undoing? (Sunset, January 2016)

I understand if you visit Yosemite in the height of the summer season when hoards of tourists are bussed in and the line at the entrance is over an hour long, you might wonder: is this wilderness?

And then you drive through the tunnel from Fresno and gasp.

Yes, Yosemite suffers fools. And yet, Yosemite cannot be undone. Thank you God.
