An aerial Yosemite

Okay, so up I went with Victor and my brother Pat and Larry Jobe as pilot. Story and pictures are on line at www.HotelCharlotte.com/aerial-yosemite.com The perspective of the park from the sky is amazingly different from what you expect, especailly Half Dome. Turns out this rock is far more narrow than it looks, the back side from land appears to be curved, but from the air looks almost as perpendicular as the face. The climb up the cables is done from the north side of the rock, not up the back.

Needless to say, if you ever have the opportunity to get in the air over Yosemite, go for it!

By the way, Larry is one of the neat people of Groveland, pilot and realator. www.pmlairportproperties.com
