Yosemite
NetIP Trip
August 9-11, 2002

Hi! My name is Rohit Khare, and these are a few random snapshots I took during our trip. It was a truly wonderful experience to visit Yosemite for the first time with so many new friends.

I'd love to hear from anyone who's got more details on who's who in each shot, or better yet, funnier caption ideas for each one :-)

Thanks again to all of the volunteers who made this trip a reality! Private civic organizations are the daily miracles of American democracy. Visiting a national treasure, much less the very park that established the American impulse to nature conservation reminds me that our community is not bound together by ballots alone, but by our openness to each other.
