Yosemite National Park

Thursday we went from one extreme to another. San Francisco to Ahwahnee- A land of plenty (people and more people, houses upon houses, roads full of traffic, etc.) to a land of rocks, prairies, and trees. Small houses, sparse and one block towns, and winding roads! Our campground, Sierra Meadows, is only 2.5 miles from the nearest town, but it takes us a good 20 minutes by truck to get there!! It feels and looks like we are in the middle of nowhere.

Friday we had gone to Glacier Point to see the Half Dome. 

Below are pictures from Saturday at Tunnel View and Bridal Veil Falls. The falls were not full like they are in the spring and summer, but you could still see where the falls get their name. We asked an Asian lady to take our picture and she spoke very little English but we were able to explain what we wanted. After Connie explained how her phone/camera worked, she was standing back trying to get us to smile and she exclaimed in a rather loud voice, “Hahaha! Hahahaha! Hahahaha!” We were laughing so hard, we had tears in our eyes! We decided it was because my brother, Irv, would not show his teeth while smiling, as he had just lost his front tooth while eating ice cream earlier in the day!
