Yosemite: Love call and echo

Bob Roney, a ranger who's been at Yosemite since 1968, offers up a few notes of "Indian Love Call" a song that once accompanied the nightly "firefall" from the park's Glacier Point. The firefall effect was created by burning embers, dumped from the point to drift down to the valley. The ritual, begun in the 19th century, was dropped the year Roney started in the park as a teenager.
