Come spend a night in the heart of the Sierra just outside Yosemite National Park at Yosemite Pines RV Resort and Family Lodging.

Photo Video of the Day: 1997 Floods by Mark Holloway

| February 4, 2009

Today we don’t have “a” Photo of the Day but a collection of photos into this new fangled thing called a “video”. Mark Holloway, you may remember he’s the one with the Cavalry photo that was yesterdays Photo of the Day, sent me a link to some video and stills he put together of the 1997 flood. Three words: Oh My God. You gotta see this. Thanks for sending it in Mark.

    Thanks for sharing this. Just one more reminder that we are not in charge no matter what we think.

    Wow! This is great! It’s funny – I was just reading a book “Yosemite: The 100 Year Flood” by Mark Goodin (Sierra Press ISBN 0-939365-68-5) which is a awesome grouping of pictures and info. (I bought it on Amazon.com for only about $5 including shipping). Any of your viewers who enjoy this video will probably like this book, too.

  3. I played “I Love A Rainy Night” in the video and the copyright police are after me. So for now the sound is gone. It was just music anyway.

  4. At that time, I lived in Reno, NV. I purchased a similar video of the action on the east side of the Sierras.
