Half Dome and Heaven – Yosemite Adventures

Volume 9 Issue 10, October 2012

Frost on the pumpkin, howling cats and wispy ghosts start to creep into our nights as the temperatures begin to cool way down. While waiting on the fall nights and all the leaves to land in the yard, I made a final fall trek to the mountains and Yosemite National Park.clip_image002

From the top of the world, you can see Half Dome and all the wonderful rocks that are just begging to be climbed. This beautiful spot is called Olmsted Point and it is on the Tioga Pass entrance at the park.

This amazing view will take your breath away and those rocks were amazingly easy to climb all over.

They were smooth granite and it was very easy to stand and walk about without too much difficulty.

We ventured over to Glacier Point and looked at Half Dome up close and we hiked to Nevada Falls that rests close to the base of Half Dome. So many wonderful places to explore and so many photos to take.

I put my beads aside for awhile and just went out and enjoyed the last of the summer weather before we called it time to begin closing the house up for the winter. Enjoy my rock photo.



New Canes and Beads

Here are some new canes that I have come up with for the fall season. I have them in my Artfire studio, my Etsy shop and my

website: www.bluemorningexpressions.com

Until next month,

New Necklaces—Finally! I managed to get my act together and create the necklaces that I have had on my planning board for years now. They are single pendants featuring some of my popular beads.

Thimbles— I am back to creating thimbles. There will be 12 in the next few months. I have only managed to get two created and one sold immediately. I will post them as they are finished.
