The Caretaker” A Henning Hand Carved Norwegian Troll.

One of the many trolls that takes care of my house. I never know where I will find him, typically avoiding doing any work. You can find more of his friends at the Henning site in Norway.

Gone to See America October 2008 Road Trip. Eighth Annual Nikonian Photography Adventure Trip. Day 6: Yosemite National Park.

The smallest waterfall in Yosemite Valley is at Fern Spring. It is just off the road and in the shade. Well worth taking the time to visit and photograph.
