It seems you got there 12 years before me, Tom.

Yosemite is a stunning park...I was in my running obsession years...went for a long run in the early morning and encountered a very large bear on the trail...ran backwards for a few hundred metres as an escape tactic and lived to tell the tale!
Tom Wilson: Sounds like a wise decision, Ray - I believe that a bear on all fours can easily outrun a man!
Ooooh! Jealous!
I love Ray's tale of terror!
The esteemed Dr Terry Vaughan (whom Frank and I visit every 2-3 weeks), has great stories from working there as a ranger in the 40's - terrific listening!
Tom Wilson: Another for your bucket list, Elizabeth - and you are much closer than I am! Dr. Terry must have had great times there.
Oh now I'm jealous, Tom, a place I would love to visit.
Tom Wilson: Only about 10 hours drive from you in Flagstaff, Frank - your next holiday, perhaps?
Stunning.
Tom Wilson: It is, isn't it?

I bet this brings back memories, Tom. Did you encounter a bear, too?
Tom Wilson: Fortunately, not, Lisl - this was long before I took up running smile
A place I would love to visit, too, Tom. So many places, so little time!
Tom Wilson: Ain't that the truth! So, do it now!

Still great shot, after all these years.
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Louis.

Are you going to show the other half tomorrow Astrid? How many days to go before you will be a daily poster?
Tom Wilson: ???
One of those places most of us have heard of but most of us have never been!
Tom Wilson: I was in San Francisco at a conference - and I was never going to be that close again!
For a slide of that age this is an excellent scan and image Tom.
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Brian.
A nice flat surface. A wonder coca cola hasn't bought it for an ad.
Tom Wilson: Watch this space! They've probably had their eyes on it for years!
Wow- overwhelmingly Impressive
Tom Wilson: It's a lovely national park - well worth a visit.
