Yosemite and Sequoia Knitting
It was the trip of a life time. It is hard to choose words to describe the vast and undisturbed beauty of our National Parks. We met many European's who shared our amazement. Below is El Capitan, which I did not free climb or solo climb. I enjoyed it with my eyes to the top and my feet firmly planted in El Cap Meadow.
We were thrilled to see a Black Bear Mama and her cubs on our first day in Yosemite at dusk. Our sighting was brief but will be remembered always. I was not able to catch her or her babies on the camera. I hope I've stored the memory and it cannot be deleted from my mind.
The trip went without a hitch. The Sequoia trees were all I hoped for and more. Our lodging in Sequoia
and Yosemite was lovely. We stayed in Wawona at the historic Victorian hotel grounds in Yosemite.
Hantavirus warnings were almost everywhere. I managed my anxieties well and took comfort in the fact that we were no where near Curry Village where the small outbreak has occurred.
Much much more to share if you are interested. I'm back to work this evening for just one night and I have new Yosemite bear socks to wear with my scrubs.....
Happy 30th Wedding Anniversary Fireman.....It was a perfect trip.
