Mountains, Rivers, Rocks, Clouds--They're All Deaf!

July 20, 2012 Posted by: Jessica Cole

Yosemite is a naturally Deaf-friendly place.  It's the outdoors!  You don't need to hear here.  You can camp, swim, float, hike, bike, and take in all the scenery without any need for hearing or interpreting.  Working here reminded me of this wonderful Clayton Valli poem, "Deaf World," about the natural connection many Deaf people have with the outdoors.

Sierra Sweet Bay

In Wawona and downstream, the South Fork Merced River provides habitat for a rare plant, the Sierra sweet bay (Myrica hartwegii). This special status shrub is found in only five Sierra Nevada counties. In Yosemite, it occurs exclusively on sand bars and river banks along the South Fork Merced River downstream from Wawona and on Big Creek.
