Bugs is a beloved cultural figure with relatively little political sway is it really in line with Americans interest for a gun lobby to be targeting him round the NRA certainly thinks.

Good Rascal Rabbit here's mcdaniel. Again, if these sort of left distant imitation tactics prevail, we're looking at a future where government agents can just come to your home while you're sleeping and bend your gun into a youth shape or jammed the barrels with carrots coastal elites like bugs bunny may be okay with that outcome, but real Americans will never stand for it mercy. Some have accused the gun right's organization of not caring about tune rights they pushed for decades to deregulate bazookas. Dynamite sticks coming from the ACME company. That's true. But the NRA would point you to their a rating for Marvin, the Martian. For providing what they call a sterling example of responsible gun ownership. Sure. But do they have any other tactics to push back against what they see boxes anti-gun stance while the F. reading a tactic in and of itself of course. But beyond that NRA leadership announced, they'll be launching a public pressure campaign encouraging members to email and tweet bugs bunny to tell him actions are harming the American way of life.

But Is It Real

But Is It Real

"I've been working this last week with Lens Work Alumnus Jack Curran because he and I are teaching workshop this weekend as part of the out of Chicago in depth virtual seminars that are happening this weekend and in preparation for that workshop, I've been spending a lot of time working with Jack Looking at his work and in particular looking at a lot of the before and after images, what the camera captured versus what he made in Photoshop Light Room in order to create a little bit of artwork from sometimes a pretty bland camera capture and that has me thinking about photography's tenuous relationship with the truth and what we do that is to say the power of what we can do with software. I I came into this idea about photography's tenuous relationship with truth when I visited. Yosemite for the first time in the early nineteen eighties to attend a workshop. Of course, before I had absorbed everything that ansel Adams did in terms of Yosemite and I. I was so inspired by the Yosemite that he presented his photographs and books that I. Thought this is this is fantastic. Going to be a wonderful opportunity to go see the place for myself. But I have to say that when I arrived in Yosemite what I experienced standing there looking at half dome and El Capitan and a Cetera was not at all what I had seen in ansel Adams photographs and I realize that he had made something in his artwork. That was not real in the sense that if you were standing there next to ansel Adams and looking at what it was that he photographed, and then comparing that to his eventual photographic artwork, you would realize how much difference he had created through the craft of photography and the aesthetic choices that he made when he was processing his film and his prints. And I became aware that there is different kinds of. Photographic truth I guess is the way I would call it. My first reaction was to be a little disappointed because. I thought I was going to see something spectacular that only exists in a photograph and so I kind of felt like had been a little bit hoodwinked. But. The more deeply I thought about this in the subsequent decades the more I've come to realize that there are different kinds of truth and one kind of truth might be what I characterize as the physical truth or maybe more accurately the camera truth. That is to say what the camera sees is one thing and that's one kind of truth. And that's the kind of truth that we really insist on in documentary photography and in evidentiary photography and those kinds of things. But rarely do we see that as part of fine art photography? The great challenge that all of us fine art photographers have is not to merely make a copy of what the world looks like or even to accept what the camera tells us and the film. Tells us that the world looks like. But rather work we're interested in different kind of truth. And generally speaking I use in my own way of thinking anyway, the term emotional peak that that's what we're looking for is some kind of emotional peak. We don't want to have every day life presented to us because we can see that for ourselves every single day, what we is something that's a more extraordinary experience we want an emotional peak. So we want think of ansel Adams in Yosemite. Again, we want that high contrast, absolutely spectacular cloud moment of unique and wonderful weather with everything sort of. Dolled up for the artwork. Of course, there are photographers who want just exactly the opposite of that. Think of Lee freelander and Louis Baltin some of that end of the scale of fine art photography but in terms of the more publicly acceptable. Ansel. Adams Edward Weston, those kind of people. That kind of photography is more geared towards some sort of emotional peak. And generally speaking that's achieved by. Pushing everything a little harder than it really is. When the camera captures it that is to say, it's generally we're gonNA push the contrast a little bit we're going to. Increase the. Vibrancy of the collars so that they're more read those fall leaves than they really appear in real life. So it's kind of a hyper reality if you will. And the purpose of that kind of hyper reality. Is I think to. Prompt in us, an emotional response that. Probably. Well. Biologists and physicians and whatnot could explain this better. But I think it has something to do with the release of endorphins and all those feel good hormones that we have in our human system that give us a little jolt of excitement and hyper reality in terms of experiencing

Sierra Club Denounces Founder John Muir For Racism

"A historic icon of the American environmental. Movement is in the spotlight John Muir founded the Sierra Club in eighteen, ninety two in San Francisco. The group's current leaders says the ongoing civil rights protests, leading to the dismantling of confederate monuments is causing the Sierra Club to reexamine its own racist history NPR's Kirk. Siegler reports. The group is pledging to remove some of its own John Maher statues. John Muir has long been revered by environmentalists. The California naturalists Biblical love. Wild places led to a legacy of federal wilderness protections, including Yosemite National Park, but mirror was also well known for making derogatory comments about blacks and native people and the modern conservation movement has wrestled for years with these transgressions in a letter to the Sierra clubs members today, current Director Michael Brune said this moment. Moment is a time to reexamine. The clubs own substantial role in perpetuating white supremacy. Bruins says the group will reconsider the views of some of its founders that lead to the modern movement being so white today when it comes to John Muir, we're looking to advance the conversation about yours legacy to look at him in a more comprehensive and inclusive way. That acknowledges his limitations. Limitations and shortcomings, the Sierra Club says it's considering removing some monuments to its founders. Brune is also pledging that the group will reorganize to ensure that a majority of its leadership is comprised of people of Color, and he hopes to spend five million dollars on diversifying their staff and training. The announcement was welcomed by Mustafa Santiago Ali of the National Wildlife Federation. You know it's long overdue. Overdue we have to address the sins of the past. He's one of the few people of Color who's actually in a leadership position in a major environmental group that major sin of the past, many of those folks felt that those spaces those natural spaces, those sacred spaces where meant for white men Ali says the modern day environmental movements lack of diversity in its writ large. Of Communities of color has had major consequences, one example, industrial facilities are often put in underserved neighborhoods and pollution from them as drifting into national parks like those John Muir fought to establish.

Not everybody knows that Hetch Hetchy before the reservoir was filled. There was kind of a second Yosemite Valley and that the scenery up there is really beautiful. And I was telling you before we started. I have never been up there. So tell us this you've got it on your list here says wonder across the damn read the history of how the O'Shaughnessy Dam was built and why it was built. You put a really important thing in here, it says get there early as parking is limited. Yes, There's a lot of people that have not been to have touched you. And it is still in Yosemite National Park. Um, it's it's the least we have the least crowded half of Yosemite in our area. And head catchy actually provides the drinking water for San Francisco. So it's a reservoir and way back when they built the ocean on a medium and you can go out there and walk across the dam, and there's signage and photos of How they brought in all the equipment to build this this little masterpiece If you will out there in basically the middle of nowhere at that time, it's pretty incredible. And I also like what you said to you about had help you. It was often referred to as the Twin Valley T 70 because when you look at it There's a lot of similarities between had heavy, especially before it was jammed and many Valley it's a wonderful place is a learning experience. You can go hiking. It's incredible. Well, you said I could leave Thomas the miniature golf and go along and then you know, we used to go up on the way back.

"Stacey heiress went missing around these sunrise high Sierra camp in Yosemite National Park and Joe. Yosemite is. We've talked about Yosemite in a past episode, and this is by far probably number one on my list of national parks right now to visit. yeah, I tell you mine, too. Yeah and I think I if I don't know if you're coming with or not this August. But we're still planning to head out there for kind of a hike and then a little party that weekend. I'll be there for the weekend part for sure yeah I have to see if I can make it for the hike before the party weekend okay. Well, the party. The Party is obviously you don't WanNa miss that, but the hiking will be a lot of fun, too. I think we're GONNA. Try to hike the chains on half dome. I believe it was episode five another gentleman by the name Michael Allen. Fishery went missing in Yosemite. National Park's. If you haven't already listened to that episode, I would listen to that one to once. You've done with this. But Yosemite is in California and it's A. It's a pretty old park. It was established on October. First eighteen ninety and it's it's big. It's over seven, hundred, forty, seven thousand acres, or one point one million square miles, which if you can think about that, it's about five times larger than Chicago. So it's a, it's A. It's a massive park. Yeah, it's huge. And it sees a ton of visitors every year, so the the average about four million people year so. And three fourths of all those visitors happened in kind of the same time period, so you're talking. You. You know you're June July August timeframe so it. It's a really busy park. But thankfully it's a big park, so there's a ton of places to hike. Some cool facts about Yosemite. It is home to one of the tallest waterfalls in the world at over two thousand, four, hundred twenty five feet. Yosemite falls. Is it is the tallest on the planet, so definitely something I. I hope to see if we get out to Yosemite this summer. Is that the one that is like? You can see the fire fall where like the light hits at certain away, and it looks like it's like lava pouring over the edge. Yeah, they call them. Moon Beause. Moon bows okay. Yeah, well I Know there's there's the rainbows at night. 'cause we talked about that the other episode as a fun fact, but I thought there was one called fire fall to. The Sun setting hits it just right, and it looks like lava I think you're right and I think. There are several waterfalls in the park that have these amazing rainbows that you can witness during the day at sunset, or even at night the moon bows so I'm excited to possibly see a moon Bo as well. So I you're seventy park was the first area of land set aside by the US government for preservation protections, so that's a cool little fact. The giant there's also giant sequoia trees that live in the park, and they can live up to three thousand years old, which is pretty unbelievable that you have trees there. That are. Three thousand years old just imagine what has happened throughout history and that three thousand years in the afternoon. I was real tiny. How the same tree! Yeah this is crazy to think about. Famous writer, a lot of you probably know of John. Muir was a naturalist and the founder of the Sierra Club. He was so taken with Yosemite that he headed up effort for its preservation, and his efforts led to the parks establishment in eighteen ninety and in nineteen. Oh, three President! Theodore Roosevelt toured Yosemite with mirror in nineteen, zero six. The park came under the federal government's control. So John Muir had a very influential role in. Getting, this park set up and preserved so. It's pretty cool and obviously theater as Roosevelt and I think Joe that that's one of your favorite presidents is if now? He started the park service basically yeah, so a pretty cool history of the park. Little in depth information on its climate Yosemite is has what people call a Mediterranean climate meaning. Most of the precipitation falls during the mild winter. And the other seasons are nearly dry less than three percent of the precipitation falls during the long hot summers so. It's definitely a park. If you're going hiking in the summer, you're GONNA WANNA. Make sure you either have a lot of water with you or you've got Kinda map marked with all the spots. You can fill up because that's just need for hiking, too. Because realize just makes it so much more difficult when you're camping. Yeah, especially for people like us where we have to travel sometimes across the country to go hiking you you there for one week and you kind of play. The the weather lottery hoping. Yeah, remember I. Mean You remember trip to our first trip to glacier? was just a rainy sued. The whole time, and it was still really cool hiking trip, but it just makes miserable. Yeah, so yeah, like I said. The climate is pretty hot and dry in the popular times that people go hiking so. Know bring a Lotta water or you know have a map with where you can fill up a on your hike. Which I think is pretty easy. There's a ton of little lakes throughout the park so. that should really be a an issue. Terrain, it's it's very mountainous and rocky. There's a lot of granite slabs. You can hike on a lot of crevasses. You can fall in. so it's some of the trails can get pretty pretty tough if you're inexperienced or not prepared so especially like I mentioned earlier the. the chain the chains on half dome. If anyone's into hiking and you don't know what that is after this episode, go to Google and look it up it. It looks terrifying and amazing at the same time. Yeah, they're very dangerous. girl died on it a few months ago. Correct, she slid off. Yeah, the problem is people. Try to hike it when it gets wet and it's just a big slab of granite, and it's not supposed to do that. It gets slippery and I've read articles about people trying to do it in sandals, and you know a lot of these accidents while really unfortunate, it's sometimes because the people don't prepare. That's I think most of the accidents we talk about. That are solvable. Are Result of unprepared, not knowing the climate. Not knowing what gear you need, not knowing what you're doing. We're not even knowing the weather forecast for today. I can tell you one hundred percent if I'm going to hike that the chain hike and there's. A chance of rain in the afternoon. I probably won't do it. Might hike up to the base of it just to see it. Through the dangerous part, yeah, and it gets really CDs pictures. It gets backed up I mean it reminds me of the backups. On Everest just tons of people going up and down, and then you've got people that chain in every link which you're not really supposed to do. And it it slows. It slows everyone down and you really just got it. You Pat Kinda light you know where some hiking boots have good traction on the bottom and you know. Don't go when there's a chance of rain. I think you'd be fine and leave early. You want to beat the crowd Sir Yeah. Hundred percent agree. Yeah, so it looks like a really cool hike, and there's a ton of other really cool hikes in the park. I think there's over. I'll get into it, but yeah, there's over eight hundred miles of trades that you can hike, so you can spend a whole year. Hike in the park. types of dangers in regards to animals. There's black bears. bighorn sheep mountain lions mule deer. Those are kind of the big. The big animals in the park nothing I would be too concerned about you know mountain lions. We've said in past episodes. If you have little children, just keep an eye on them. Don't let them. Out of your sight. In the park, black bears are not going to. Probably attack people unless they're provoked. or You come across a bear with their the cubs. Yeah and I haven't really read too many reports of people getting injured by or killed by animals in the park so I think. You know if you take precautions, you'll be fine. like I, said the train. It's wooded.

"Joe Seventy National Park has been closed for nearly three months because of stay at home orders but today the park is reopening in a limited way Cap Radios Ezra. David Romero reports that the closure has had a huge effect on nearby businesses. On the way into Yosemite National Park from Fresno sits the Yosemite Sugar Pine Mountain Railroad, which shut down with the rest of California in March Scott. mcghee runs the operation. We lost every single tour group and school group that we had coming up here. Yosemite is opening with a lot of restrictions. Only about half of the average June visitors are allowed in, and they must make online reservation for each car in advance, Jamie Richards Yosemite spokesperson. We're going to be monitoring condition daily. We're GONNA make adjustments as needed and we're going to work to maintain safe conditions for visitors. Only two campgrounds are open in the larger one. One is operating at just fifty percent of capacity. Other campsites are closed due to staffing Richard says she's interested in seeing how the animals in the park respond again the people we've seen a lot of bears out in active we will see when the park reopens. How the animals continue to reopen adapt to visitors coming back last year, visitors spent more than one point seven billion dollars in the four California counties that surround the Park Brooke. Smith with visit Yosemite Madera. County says that could drop by as much as half this year between fires in government shutdowns. This is definitely the longest we've ever gone with you Ashleigh. Up when she first heard, the park was opening Amy George and her husband Kyle Mon- Holland from Davis. California rushed to book a few day passes. I was drinking coffee I'm like I'm just GonNa. See and says I go. July twenty second has day passes Great. That's our twentieth anniversary. The pair of teachers spent their honeymoon in Yosemite. George has visited the park since childhood and the reservation system has long term effects. Maybe this'll lessen the impact that humans have had on the environment on Yosemite.

Opr correspondent remedy Bergelin reports from Yosemite. Remmy thanks for joining us. My pleasure rummy tell us what led to the sudden shutdown well Park Ranger Derek. Osmond was on his morning rounds near Yosemite hogged in Metro region. When the incident occurred here he is describing exactly what he saw in his own words bell. My God what kind of bear a really big bail we see a lot of wildlife out here chipmunks squirrels turtles but a real life bear. This poses a huge threat to the other animals and their habitats. I'm sure they're all scared shitless just like the rest of us who scary remmy. What steps are park officials taking to deal with this emergency? We'll orders came down immediately from the NPS to evacuate the entire park. All Campers and hikers been escorted to the exits and those located in more remote locations were airlifted out by helicopter. Every road into and out of the park has since been blocked off and animal control has just arrived and how our guests reacting to the news for the most part. They seem very understanding of the severity of the problem. And the need to cut the visit short. I spoke with a few. And here's what they had to say. I think closing the park is definitely the right thing to do. I mean what if there's more than one Barron there? I'm never coming back here. I don't care that the bear was spotted fifty miles away from here. My family and I could have died with my own. The beast was big as a tank with a coat is black as death. It's for matted. With the blood of its last victim. It led out a terrifying. How that would put the fear of God in its teeth. Sharpest ice picks then as the moon lane the creature shaped shifted Beketov Man. I'm sorry the bears shape shifted their. No the word Wolf. Oh I'm sorry. I thought you saw that bear bear as you just heard people are concerned and the mood here remains tense right now. Authorities are having trouble convincing a team to even go into the woods to look for it and frankly I can't blame them. You'd have to be fucking crazy to sign a death. Wish like that right so it seems that Yosemite could be closed for quite some time. What will the National Park Service do? If they can't drive down the bear if attempts to find tranquilize the Animal Fail. Officials are prepared to smoke the bear out by setting the parks tire. Eleven hundred square miles on fire.

"This during your trip It's actually a loop so the road comes in and it does a loop up that goes around and then comes back out. It's thirteen miles in total. There's a few different ways you can do this loop so you're not really going to be able to loop loop it with your RV if you're camping the campground that's fine and you have some other option so you don't need to drive your rv around but you don't want to have to take your RV honest Lupin expect to be able to park and find places to stop and be able to pull it in. Just it's too tight. There's not that many parking spots as it is so don't plan on using senior. RV To do this loop There's other options so there's really three other options One you could bike this. It is only thirteen miles so you know. Our kids are definitely not doing a thirteen mile bike ride but I think for some adults. That wouldn't be too bad and you'd easily be able to stop them and see everything that you want to see and do hikes or whatever it is that you want to do so biking's a nice option second is you can't take personal vehicle as long as it's off season and there's parking if it's the heat of the summer good luck trying to find parking. This is one of the busiest parks. It's in the top ten. I think it's about five million visitors a year and the the summer months are extremely busy so I don't think that a personal vehicle is a great option. If you're there during the summer we were able to use a personal vehicle cold but again we were there in shoulder season really in late fall before the winter weather really came in and Limited a bunch of the access so so personal vehicle you could use but Other than just getting to one spot and then parking your personal vehicle like in the downtown town like the Yosemite village parking you could maybe park your personal vehicle and then take the shuttle system throughout. So that's the third option is the shuttle system so the shuttle. The system in the winter months kind of fall off season goes year round throughout the village area. So you have kind of the lodge and you have the ansel Adams Gallery. There's the museum that's over there. There's the Conservation Center and and then it goes over to where the campgrounds are at. And so that's kind of like the upper pines and lower pines so the whole half Dome village I think is what they call it. where the campsites and stuff are at so year round the shuttle will do that loop and then in the summer months? It also does a larger loop where it'll take you Out By el Capitan and then over to The kind of Cathedral beach area. So that gets you a little bit closer. To where bridal veil falls falls is so those are your three options you can take personal vehicle but probably only on offseason or just park in the main parking areas and then the shuttle's tells the main way that you're getting around the area or biking if you WANNA bike it I guess you could walk to but thirteen miles is a lot of walking so especially if you WANNA do hikes when you get to different replaces. So that's your options for getting around now in terms of what you WANNA see you're driving around. We actually did a little detours. We were first coming in and instead going straight into the village We went and did the little bit of a a shot to the right. That'll take you to the bridal veil falls visitors area where you can park and there's not actually a visitor's center here but there's a parking lot it's not a very large parking lot and you can't back up Here with a total anything and you won't be able to fit in. RV LARGE RV and here anyway so we were in the jeep. But it's a really nice short hike. It's super easy for kids. I don't know exactly but it couldn't be more than a quarter of a mile to get to the base of the falls and then there's a bunch of boulders and rocks and stuff that are down there they don't actually want you hiking on that to try to get closer to the falls so you're really just seen it from the area where they have like a concrete path space that they want you to see it but it's a really cool waterfall to see it's six hundred and twenty feet so this is a huge waterfall and we were there like I said in late fall so the last week of October Ober and at that point in time Yosemite falls is not flowing anymore. Just doesn't have enough water but bridal veil falls was still going so it was really cool to be able to see a waterfall and this was the waterfall that we were able to see. So then as you get back onto the loop and keep heading into the valley you'll come across Al Capitan. which will be on your left? This this is the huge thirty five hundred foot vertical granite wall that just juts out of the ground in and heads up and I if as if that wasn't cool enough to see you usually can see climbers that are on the mountain. If you haven't seen the movie free Solo you definitely want to check that out ahead of time. It's actually a documentary about a professional rock climber. Alex who is The first person ever to free solo climb meaning. He's not using using any ropes or anything to climb El Capitan. So just insane. I think it's amazing. The people that are climbing it with ropes. I mean that's spectacular tacklers. Well and what's really cool is you can see these people on their Either climbing or we were seeing people towards a nighttime or towards the the evening and so they had their little like hammock. Things set up on the sides of the mountain. Because they're going to sleep there that night and then continue climbing up the next day so really cool to see if as if the nature wasn't cool enough on its own. Seeing the climbers was really need as well and I'm pretty sure free. Solo is free right now on Amazon is on prime. Video are yeah through Amazon Prime Video. I remember seeing it somewhere. Free might have been Netflix. But check that out because it will get you excited for the trip in. It'll just make an awe of these people people that are doing these climbs. So that's Al Capitan. As You keep heading forward you can't see half dome in the distance You'd have to drive drive up further up by like the half dome parking and then hike up if you wanted to get closer to that area. We only went as far as the Yosemite Valley parking lot and we parked there And then went around the little village so the village that they have Is Really Cool. I mean they have a bunch of stuff there post office there they also have Some different in places where you can get a bite to eat. They have a Park Ranger Station area visitor center where you can talk with Park Rangers and get recommendations on Hikes and stuff get the junior ranger packets. There's a big interactive area and then there's kind of like Native American specialist area where they have they have a whole all kind of village area. Setup shows you what some of the housing would have been like. There's usually somebody there to answer questions about things. There happened to be a basket display. That was going on while while we were there So we were able to see that and enjoy that. There's also that's the Indian cultural exhibit sand that's correct term so so Really cool to see. There's a lot of different programs that are happening. We actually did not make time to go on. One of the ranger led hikes. But they allow the kids or at least offseason to go through the Indian cultural exhibit. And then meet with the interpretive specialist. They had there and answer different questions and go through. Things is to work on their junior ranger packets so that was a nice feature so then as we kept drive in the loop to head out of there we stopped kind of meadows area at the base by Yosemite falls calls. It's while it's not super close Yosemite falls but you can hike over to where the base of Yosemite falls is at and you could continue hiking up as well We in little kids so we weren't doing any major major hikes but it's just nice to get out your legs and go see that really beautiful and of course you alphabetize not too far in the distance We kept driving then and stopped for while at El Capitan and saw that around the base of it. And that's where really where we could see a bunch of the climbers that were up on the mountain and then we continued up to tunnel view. So this is going towards WANNA so this is heading up until forty one and you can stop there before the tunnel and park your car. There's a small parking not at probably only holds like Twenty cars or so so it's really not very large but In the off season we were fine getting a parking spot. I think it's really worth it to try to be able to stop here and be able to see tunnel view and and get that view of the valley so it's really worth trying to make that work. We were actually there and it was almost sunset so it was was starting to get dark and it meant that the valley was starting to get those pinks purples to it and Like I mentioned before you're able to see kept on half dome and bridal veil falls all the same shot so that was really neat and what we ended up doing is we turn the jeep around and parked on the parking lot. That's it's on the south side of the road. There were fewer people there and then you can easily get onto a small path. Nobody else was on this hike. We only had to go up. Maybe maybe maybe a mile at the most but I think it was even less than a mile to a place called inspiration point and this is actually one of the spots. Were ansel ansel Adams. Has this great shot of the Yosemite Valley so if you want that view that you get from tunnel view You can see that at tunnel view but if you want a nice hike. That isn't isn't terribly difficult. There is a bit of an allegation gain. But it's not that long and you can hike up to inspiration point and really see that same view you that he saw and there's probably going to be nobody around you so this is one hike that I think is a really good one to see because it was the only one that we were able to do where we didn't have other people next to us so within at least the valley so Really a cool hike and a great way to see that beautiful landscape and and Really feel like you're connected with the people that had been there before us so NEAT place to stop and see and when we come back. We're GONNA talk about camping for the park.

This one is in today unless you can call it a date when you go on a camping trip with your girlfriend. We've spent the past two nights in a tent with a broken poll, we've stood over the campfire so long. We both smell like survivors of a house fire. We've showered sort of in a glorified between near the campsites entrance. We've done less grimy things to we took pictures of ourselves in front of half dome.

We listen. I park. We walked to the main lodge in the valley. Get a beer with me. I asked her she says, of course, she will. We get in line behind the blonde family of four outfitted in north face gear that probably cost as much in aggregate as a used Corolla when it is our turn at the counter we order beers. We take the beers. We sit down I look around. And then I start crying. Which is a weird thing to do inside.
