Swinging Bridge at Wawona – Yosemite  (December 2015, 24″ x 18″, linocut)

A short walk from the Chilnualna Falls Trailhead along the not-so-famous South Fork of the Merced River, one can find the Swinging Bridge of Wawona. This bridge brings back Indiana Jones-like fantasies of adventure and daring – for a second anyway. It’s a lovely area to picnic and hang out. I’ve seen a Cooper’s Hawk land on its cables and an American Dipper swimming and bobbing along the waterways below it. It’s also a favorite swimming hole for Yosemite ‘insiders’! My California Naturalist course spent the day on and near this spot, engaging our senses, enriching our souls and learning to experience Nature through the lenses of both science and personal observation.
