Whoa, that was fun to watch! I wonder how long it took to set that up and record it.

Here's a video from Yosemite N.P. on Facebook, showing Sierra newts wrestling -- it's mating season. Pretty fascinating.

Quote:
Yosemite National Park
One of our rangers stumbled upon quite the scene in the foothills: Sierra newts wrestling and mating. This video shows all the action! To learn more about what you're seeing in the video, visit   Newts Wrestling.


I think the video will play if you click on the picture.

An orca might regard a speed boat as we do a lobster - hard on the outside, but filled with soft tasty meat...

Probably most would recognize this as : Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring, which is a movement within the Bach Cantata 147.

This is a vid of using Google Glass as an Electronic Flight Box (EFB). Found at AirInsight.

I can just imagine:

Exit Whitney Portal Store (WPS) - Check
Downhill (Eastward) to the Trailhead Sign (TS) - Check

And so on...

Mmmmm . . . wouldn't necessarily characterize this behavior as "chasing the boat". Small toothed whales ride wakes, apparently for fun, all the time. If they were actually chasing the boat, the video would have been a lot shorter. So would the boat.

The Piolet d'Or Lifetime Achievement Award - after Walter Bonatti, Reinhold Messner, Doug Scott, Robert Paragot and Kurt Diemberger - went to American alpinist John Roskelley. Born in 1948, he undertook a series of great climbs in the 1970's and '80's such as Nanda Devi, Great Trango Tower, K2 and Makalu.
