sitting by the merced river

the merced river

Long-time Yosemite naturalist Carl Sharsmith was once asked what he would do if he only had a day to see Yosemite. "Madam," he replied, "I'd sit by the Merced River and cry."
 
I got to see as much as I could in two days at Yosemite. It was not enough time. I did manage to
sit by the Merced river for an hour one day. I will never forget the total feeling of peace surrounding me and the sweet smell in the air from the lupine wildflowers nearby.

the cool merced

I can't wait to go back to Yosemite someday and dip my feet in that cold mountain water of the
Merced river.
