We had a nice hike on Merced Grove trail!
Mit dem Boot auf dem klaren Wasser des Merced Rivers unterwegs zu sein - das wärs jetzt!
Doch leider ist die Luft momentan nicht mehr so klar wie hier auf dem Bild. In der Nähe des Yosemite wüten derzeit wieder Waldbrände und der Rauch dringt bis ins Yosemite Valley vor.
Auch das ist Natur. Waldbrände haben zwei Seiten - zum einen die Gefahr für Menschen und ihre Siedlungen, Orte und mühsam erbauten Häuser, Hütten und die Infrastruktureinrichtungen. Aber für die Natur sind sie lebensnotwendig, so widersprüchlich das auch klingt.
Sie befreien den Waldboden von übermäßigen Bewuchs und geben dem Wald eine Chance, sich in den nächsten Jahren "neu zu organisieren". Zudem sorgt die Hitze dafür, dass die Mammutbäume ihre Samen freisetzen und auf den frei gewordenen Boden Fuß fassen können.
Schädlich sind die Waldbrände also nur, wenn sie außer Kontrolle geraten, zu spät entdeckt werden und so für Schäden sorgen. Denn die Ranger legen aus den genannten positiven Gründen auch kleinere Feuer selber, um der Natur zu helfen.
Im Yosemite Nationalpark finden sich Hinweisschilder, die die beiden Seiten der Waldbrände gut beleuchten. Solltet ihr also dort irgendwann mal unterwegs sein - einfach die Augen offen halten 😉 - Werbung, da Ortsnennung -

Are you pinching pennies during these hot months? Here is a summer hustle tip! Photography can be a great way to make a quick buck during the summer. If you own a camera, ask family friends and post online advertising or even start your own small bussiness. All it takes is an idea and the will to see it through.
Here is a healthy meal you can cook at home!
The average price of a chicken entree with vegetables on the side is $13.41 at a restaurant and $6.41 if cooked at home.
If we take into account labor and excess produce the cost of this home cooked meal will come to be $8.01, still less than eating out.
Monitor the ingredients used to cook your meal while choosing where your money is spent. Purchase produce from family owned markets in Merced county to help increase financial stability while saving money and eating healthy 🥑🥒🥕
🎭UC Merced is doing a great job at spreading artistic expression throughout the community. Featured here is the Theater and Social Responsibility Seminar taught by Professor Kim McMillon. The students touch on pressing subjects related to the political and social climate of today’s society! The class is rehearsing a play by Luis Valdez. This amazing group of students will be performing excerpts from plays with social justice themes, called “Voices of the Revolutionary Theatre Collective” on August 9th at 11 am at Lakireddy Auditorium!🎟
The Valley Terraces first opened its doors in 2005 and there are 9 different complexes on our campus! 🏘 There are two or three bedroom suites available, and each room is shared by two people. People living in The Valley Terraces have their own shared bathroom and a living room that can be used for studying or lounging with friends! 📚 These “apartments” are located in between The Summits housing area and The Sierra Terraces housing area. The apartments are conveniently located near a 24/7 laundry room and The Den. The Den is a great place for students to hang out with friends! At The Den you can lounge with friends and play pool, ping pong, air hockey, or foosball. 🏓🎱🎮 Don’t feel like playing games? You can also sit back with friends and watch some shows on the big screen tvs in The Den! 📺
