First, things first--- Happy Birthday to my Uncle John! He's 66 year old today. :)
Last week we went to Yosemite to celebrate (a little early) our 3rd anniversary!
I've always wanted to goto Yosemite. It's just crazy to live out west as long as I have and not make it to the most beautiful park in the world!
Day one we decided to hike from our hotel to Mirror Lake. And we took....the road less traveled.
I could have sworn we were still on the trail!
There was a bit o water rushing through so I was hopping from rock to rock to avoid getting wet. And you all know how graceful I am! In case you don't--- I got wet. :)
We continued onward on this poorly marked trail braving slippery slopes...
Climbing treacherous mountains... ok ok... those two shots were totally posed. And so is:
this one! We are many things. Climbers of mountains...we are not!
After hiking forever to get to Mirror Lake, we are greeted by:
A sign telling us the 'trail' we were on was closed.
We did eventually make it to Mirror Lake by taking the less adventurous paved trail. And now for something completely different:
Anyway... Yosemite was soooo peaceful! We loved it!
Just have to watch out for Yogi!
