[cont'd from yesterday] Meet Nicole Belle Isle, the engineer working to bring a new urine-diverting dry toilet to Glen Aulin! Because urine hampers composting, this system separates solids into a separate chamber. It might not be glamorous, but it's nifty (& important!) stuff.

How do you balance maintaining wilderness access with protecting clean water in an age of increasing visitation? With the composting toilet at Glen Aulin no longer composting well (waste must be carried out by mules), one engineer is working on a solution... [cont'd tomorrow!]

For millions of years, Tenaya Creek has flowed over solid granite, carving a path later followed by ancient glaciers. With each spring the creek flows anew with snowmelt—dwarfed by the scale of the vast canyon it has made. Where have you witnessed the power of endurance?

Great shot from last week's snowstorm! Did you know Yosemite's bears stay active as long as food resources are available (no matter what the weather is)? For this reason, proper storage of human food is especially important in fall and winter!

Data will continue being collected through 2021. Because of the experimental setup, researchers need to be able to repeat the samples after a prescribed burn has taken place. After the data has been analyzed and the findings published, we'll report back!
