On top of Sentinel, there's a dead tree that proves nature will try to reclaim any surface, no matter how barren or windswept. When we were here two years ago, it was still standing, but it has finally succumbed to gravity. (This shot was a bit blurry, so I used PhotoShop's watercolor filter. That's definitely become my favorite way to save a blurry shot.)

Here is Dave and Jen's Mom, Fay, standing next to the downed tree.

This panorama is extremely wide, but it's worth it. As you scroll your browser, you can pretend you're on Sentinel turning slowly to take in the magnificent scenery. The waterfall you can see to the right of Half Dome is Nevada Falls.
