Our second morning in Mariposa, California,
after coffee and breakfast at the Butterfly Ranch,
we decide to drive into Yosemite National Park to take in some sights.
Anxious from being in the car and wanting to get out into nature,
we pull over to walk down and wade into the Merced River.
for a brief swim with the river flies…
Otherwise, a pretty quiet day of computation, conversation,
and playing with pets around the ranch…
