Pretty good article. Surprising to learn Yosemite had it's first geologist in 2008... they need to spend a little more money on scientists to do this research and less on rangers who accomplish nothing.

Also a sneaky way to throw in all the little adds for a food delivery service.

Yosemite geologists, with the help of climbers, are inching closer to answering the elusive question: "Why do rocks fall?"


Have these people not heard of something called gravity...

There is probably a gap between the geologists that end up doing drilling or mining work and those that end up in the NPS.
