Celebrate June 30

On 30 June, 1864, President Lincoln granted the Yosemite Valley to the state of California for "public use, resort, and recreation," to be held for those purposes "for all time." I mean come on, did you see the pictures I posted from our honeymoon? This is totally cause for celebration; this would be a grimmer world indeed were the Yosemite Valley to be carved up into golf course subdivisions or buried under a reservoir. Plus it's an excuse for me to post this picture again!
