Yosemite 1997

There are places that you visit where you just feel the presence of God in everything around you. Yosemite is one of those places. We have been lucky enough to visit some truly beautiful places, many of them National Parks. Yosemite is one of the places that makes me feel like God is giving me a sneak peak of what heaven must be like. If heaven is more beautiful than Yosemite then I really can't even begin to wrap my brain around what experiencing heaven will be like.

The Yosemite valley is simply breathtaking:



We spent a week camped by the river, hiking, swimming and sightseeing. Hubby and my son hiked up Half Dome. I think it was close to 13 miles round trip.




We rented innertubes and floated on the river. Before anyone says anything......you were required to wear a lifejacket. My son wasn't afraid of the water. Just wanted to clear that up.



We hiked to some seclude mountain lakes. Someone forgot to tell my daughter that mermaids don't typically hang out in fresh water:



One week in the Yosemite Valley.....$418.00. Next year, back to Tahoe. It's the year that my daughter and her friend actually embarrassed Hubby beyond belief.

Thanks for making sure people don't think I was a wuss. I think maybe I had grown out of my wussiness by this trip? Haha, my word verification: boonis!
