Lunchtime Photo

Yosemite National Park, North Dome. I took this picture as we were coming down the Vernal Fall trail. The late afternoon sun provided a lovely bit of color and our height gave me a nice angle to shoot from. Five minutes later the sun had dropped enough that North Dome was just a gray rock again. Light comes at you fast sometimes.


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 today so we can keep on doing the type of journalism 2019 demands.
