Han Solo in Yosemite

I wish I had been hiking in Hetch Hetchy this past week! Harrison Ford dashed into Yosemite piloting his own plane and filmed a sequence for the Environmental Defense Fund’s documentary “Discover Hetch Hetchy.” He has joined the battle for the removal of the O’Shaughnessy dam, a cause that has gathered much attention lately. As the San Francisco Chronicle asked, “Can Indiana Jones rescue Hetch Hetchy Valley from its watery Temple of Doom?” For anyone wanting to learn more about this controversial and complicated issue, I would recommend two good books:
