I Fell in Love in Yosemite!

Tuesday, July 31, 2012

I had the very special privilege of camping in Yosemite with the So Cal Hikers & Peakbaggers. This Organizer is a very talented hiker and gifts us with wonderful adventures.

I was hiking in the Tuolumne Meadows when I fell in love with these two beautiful babies crossing in Soda Springs. It was love at first sight.

On a different note, today is my last day to send out team goodies so get to it I must! After that I have some catching up on blogs, articles and tracking to do. I must also confess, this trip involved a whole lot of eating so we did quite a bit of that too.

I had promised to take some pictures of these murals in the Alabama Hills Cafe painted by a local artist named Elton. That sandwich was so delicious I ate every little bit.

    How cool to see Deer. They are such beauties. I can see why you ate the entire sandwich. That looks sooooo good!

    Yosemite is magical. I was only there as a kid but would love to go back. My family is from California & used to go there a lot. Trying not to be envious! Thanks for the pix! emoticon

    I'm so glad you got to enjoy the Tuolome area of Yosemite - did you get down into the valley at all? It's all beautiful up there so a great place to spend some time for sure!

    I love Yosemite. I never go during the summer, but spring- the dogwood bloom and the falls are full, autumn- the leaves change and winter-so quiet, no falls. My favorite place on Earth! I love to lay in the meadow and look up at Yosemite Falls. Been going there since '65.

    My first back pack EVER was in the Hetch Hetchy wilderness of Yosemite. So beautiful, and I was 40 years younger then! Love Yosemite anytime....though, right now their is little water coming over the falls!

    Very cool, it is always fun to see wild animals in nature. I love that you love Yosemite National Park. I'm a Park Ranger for the NPS so I always love to hear that someone really had a great experience in a park!
