Tuolumne store...a strange season this last one. Fires, smoke, and park closures, but we didn't close down in the meadows. Long post to follow soon.
Anyway, did a lot of art - watercolor - pen-n-ink this year...even sold some too. FYI, each day I posted a "sketch of the day" on the bulletin board outside of the store...some turned out pretty nice too...enjoy.

I like the crab, too.

I've been doing a few paintings as well:

Mark, I was just thinking the other day that you have been awful quiet the last couple of months. Glad to see you posting again. Your water colors are really looking great. I wish that I had some kind of artistic talent.

Gary, no wifi/internet up in Tuolumne Meadows. I was "stuck" working up there all summer in the store (as lead cashier) the past 4 months.

Ok. I like the mosquito and the fly. Thinking the mosquito and fly should be the front page of the Mosquito report next season.
A great job all around, Mark!
