This morning I woke up to a Google Doodle commemorating the 123rd Anniversary of Yosemite National Park. Don’t get any ideas of celebrating with them with a little family trip to the location. You will be greeted by closed gates because of the government shutdown, the first in 17 years. Google, check out the first article on news.google.com. Regardless, there are plenty of people laughing about the irony of the latest Google Doodle. As for me, I’m enjoying the experience of a government shutdown from comfort outside of Washington D.C.
