The View From My Window

Last night I posted a picture of the night sky at Yosemite taken “more or less” from my hotel window. That means, of course, that it wasn’t actually taken from my hotel window. But it was pretty nearby.

This morning, however, provides a better chance to show the real view as the sun rises in the valley. It’s nice to wake up to this! That’s Glacier Point, and off in the other direction is Half Dome. Bluebirds are cavorting in the trees, there’s no snow on the ground, and temps are in the high 40s. Pretty good for February.


Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn’t fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

Today, reader support makes up about two-thirds of our budget, allows us to dig deep on stories that matter, and lets us keep our reporting free for everyone. If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation so we can keep on doing the type of journalism that 2018 demands.
