1. You tweet, right? Well, if you do, then you’re one up on me and my pathetic average of 1 irrelevant tweet per month. Generally, I haven’t found Twitter to be the end-all, be-all of much, but it is an amusing way to waste time. So, if you’re into Yosemite and want to feel up-to-date on what’s going on there, follow Bob Roney’s Twitter site. He’s aka YosemiteBob, and he’s a hoot. Maybe sometimes unintentionally so, but it is what it is.
Here’s two of YosemiteBob’s recent tweets. Priceless.
“Those amorous Yosemite frogs sang long into the night in spite of the cold water and snow mother nature through at them.”
“A remarkable juxtaposition. Just as rain begins turning to snow in Yosemite Valley, for the first time this year, I hear a robin singing.”
2. There’s a lot going on at parks in the Sonoma County parks system in April. The activities range from kid-friendly events like the ‘family amphibian search’ and ‘Tom Sawyer’s Picnic’ to hikes and digging for mushrooms. I’ve spent most of my hikes at state and national parks so I’m circling a couple of different dates on my calendar during this monthlong celeberation to see some new parks. Maybe you should too?

3. A new study shows Californians and New Yorkers are the most active people, while those in Texas and Alabama are the least active. As someone who has lived in all four of those states (along with several other ones too), I can attest that the study seems about right. The study looked at the percent of people in each state who meet minimum exercise recommendations. See more at this site.
