Reminder!!! Last chance to enjoy Chiura Obata, Art of Yosemite in the Yosemite Museum. The exhibit is up through
October 21, 2007. This exhibit explores the work of the artists Chiura Obata (1885 – 1975) who first visited Yosemite in
1927, producing watercolors that led to a series of prints made by master woodblock artists in Japan. The show
extensively covers his earliest visits during 1927-1930, but includes works produced up to 1958. This exhibit displays
over 30 woodblock prints, sumi and watercolor paintings, sketches, a well as his actual paints, brushes, and artifacts. (M.

Tuolumne Meadows

知る限り、Tioga Roadは今月になってから、二度ほど雪で(一時)閉鎖しました。今日行ってみたら、意外にも残雪は一部の北向き斜面のみにしか見られませんでした。火事の煙も消え去り、空気はかなりクリーンでした。朝8時ごろの、TM付近の気温は氷点下数度でしたが、昼には50度近くに上がりました。さすがに岩は冷え始め、座っていると冷えてきます。明日から、Tioga Road沿いでのOvernightの駐車は不可となります(Tioga Road沿いからのBackpackingは不可)。
