Yosemite Spring Getaway 2013

Once state tests and AP exams were done, I flew the coop for a four-day Yo-Mo-Bo weekend. (That’s Yosemite National Park, Mono Lake, and Bodie Ghost Town.) 

This was a chance to get in some more practice with the Nikon D800E, a new wifi memory card, and a new bluetooth “cable” release. When the technology is working, you can use your iPhone as a shutter release that also tags images with GPS info. Then that image can be sent to your iPhone’s camera roll for immediate sharing. 

A technical snafu (or oversight on my part) resulted in some school drama on the Monday of my long weekend. No sub showed up and I my iPhone had no wave. The school secretary worried I was face down in a pool of blood and sent teachers to my home looking for signs of life or the stench of death. They found neither. A chance Facebook connection and late breakfast at Yosemite Lodge at the Falls (with wifi) ended the drama.
