Letting Go at Yosemite Falls

02.12.13 | 5 Comments

The sun’s glare heats the ridge of my nose, my  shoulders are warm and the fifty Japanese tourists that just filed up the paved incline begin to ricochet from fencepost to fencepost, angling their iPads and phones and cameras, each catching a glimpse of Yosemite Falls on the tiny digital displays. A large bevy of them stops to take a photo of Jolene, and then of themselves with Jolene, their American by-the-falls mascot. Then, across the field of boulders they notice Ford and Chas, scrambling over the rock, inching their way toward the falls.
