On Tuesday the CHP(California Highway Patrol) Eurocopter AS 350 landed across the street at the junior high to pick up a injured person that was in a car crash just down the street. Since they circled over our house twice before landing I had a chance to grab my camera and walk over to take some pictures.

I had a hard time getting the shutter speed low enough to get the rotors blurred but once i did my pictures looked WAY better than the ones that the rotors were frozen in space. Out of about 20 pictures, here are the best ones...

Last week we went to Yosemite for three days. We went hiking and biking most days and on Thursday we went swimming even though the water was cold. We didn't make it all the way up to Glacier Point because the road was TERRIBLE. They were repaving the roads so most of it was gravel as dirt, and since there were no lines on the road some people were driving right down the middle really fast.

I saw my first Yellow Bellied Marmot, so that was pretty exciting and then we had a bear in the campsite next to us one morning because some people left their food out. Since it found food one night, it kept coming back trying to get more.
