People travel to wonder at the height of mountains,
at the huge waves of the sea,
at the long courses of rivers,
at the vast compass of the ocean,
at the circular motion of the stars;
and they pass by themselves
         without wondering.
                -- St. Augustine

About the image:  Not Yosemite.
While the tourists are inching bumper-to-bumper through Yosemite, a few miles away this view and the lakes and streams that go with it remain almost untouched.


  1. Thank goodness they remain almost untouched!

  2. ". . . they pass by themselves without wondering": so thought-provoking!

    What a beautiful place you've photographed; and, yes, so full of wonder.
