Half-Dome in Yosemite National Park -- who hasn't seen it? Who hasn't been there? And yet it still takes your breath away..... We spent a few days in Yosemite last week before the weekend holiday. We enjoyed great weather, small crowds, and plenty of water in the waterfalls -- as well as the murmuring voices of a dozen foreign languages because Yosemite does indeed belong to the world now. People come from all over the globe, and a good game is to guess the language of the people nearby taking photos of the waterfalls -- Is that German or Swedish? Or can you tell the difference between Korean and Chinese? Yosemite is a tonic for the troubles of California -- 10 percent unemployment, a $16 billion state budget deficit, every other home mortgage underwater -- yes all true and very discouraging. Only go to Yosemite and see Half-Dome and then know in your heart that the current troubles will pass.
