Heart thanks and signs of Spring (maybe)

Missing our dear friend Max. Thank you for a wonderful friendship to so many around the world. Run free, sweet friend! You will always live in our hearts. It has been quite a season here. Spring seems to tease us with sunny days, and rainy dreary ones as well. Our Memorial Day camping trip to Sardine Lakes and the Sierra Buttes area was cancelled due to snow closures at all of the campgrounds.
As we thought of other places to visit while we have this three day weekend, we realized that many of our parks have experienced these late season storms.
Yosemite National Park Search and Rescue has been busy, as we are moving into big season, and folks are visiting...yet weather is bringing lots of surprises.
If you have a few minutes...this video took our breath away...we've missed it but may have to plan for next season :)
Yosemite Nature Notes - Episode 9 - Frazil Ice

  2. Oh what a beautiful wildflower field! Max sure touched a lot of hearts worldwide. And a beautiful video of one of my very favorite places on earth. How fascinating that frazil ice is frozen mist! Amazing how it thickens in Yosemite Creek - just a stunningly beautiful video, and nice to know that the event is such a harbinger of Spring. We could use some spring around here! Brrrrrrrr!

    I'm so sorry about your camping plans for the holiday. What a bummer!!! You can come with us if you want to :) We would love to have you!

  9. It's crazy around here, isn't it?! May is almost over, but it still seems like winter. But at least we don't have to water our flowers or lawns for a little while longer, right? Hope you and Sierra are staying cozy!

  10. I have been to Yosemite but never during March or April. This is definitely a must see!

    Wags and Kisses,

  11. Maxdog will be missed by hundreds around the world. We must wrap our arms around Maxmom as she mourns her best friend.

    We sure are hoping that spring is in your neck of the woods. It showed up here!

  12. That is a great picture for Max, and also a great picture to remind us that we must always remember life's little pleasures!

    It's been some weird weather here this spring, too. Hot, cold, rainy, then hot again. I'd like for it to be breezy and 65 until September..

  13. An amazing video. Thanks for sharing. love the spring picture too.

  14. Woof! Woof! Interesting info in regards to Yosemite. The weather change has been incredible for the past months/years. So what's your plan for the Memorial Day weekend ... probably hang out with Sammie. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

  15. So sweet of you to remember Max, we will all miss him.
    That video was amazing but we never heard of frazil ice - kinda scary!
    It did look like lava.
    Thanks for showing us the video - we must share it with our dad - he will love it!

  16. That was pretty cool stuff in that video! Umm, no pun intended ... well, maybe it was intended a little.

  17. WOW!!! I haven't seen something that amazing, that awe-inspiring, in a LONG time!

    Thanks so much for sharing that video with us, Sierra Rose! I'd never heard about frazil ice and now I know a bunch about it :)

  18. Wow, slurpees and snow cones - what an adventure! That was a great video to see - frazil ice, never heard of it before. We hope you can still find some grand adventure for the weekend. If not, just go have fun with Avalon and Sammie:)

  20. Those late season snow storms are so often a problem for camping and hiking up high! I hope that you find another good plan.

    The frazil ice is very very cool!

  21. Missing our friend Maxdog and missing your big sis Honey too. We know that they are now running free together at the bridge.
    That video is just amazing! Yosemite is a place on mom's "to visit" list. Maybe one day we can all journey out that way.
