yosemite

i’ve been a lame blogger lately. i have many thoughts i’d like to blog about, but haven’t found the time. hopefully, i’ll get back on in the saddle in the days and weeks to come.

in the mean time, here’s a little photo survey of our camping trip to yosemite this past week:

the first two days were warm and beautiful, and we did a lot of this…

and saw stuff like this (a rock slide that closed off a portion of the “mirror lake trail”)…

and breathtaking views like this…

but on our third day, it turned very cold, and rained the entire day and night, and we had to construct this…

we tried to stay warm at night by doing this…

then, on the fourth morning, we woke up in 20 degree weather to 6 inches of snow, and it looked like this…

and this…

we found an empty lounge at the historic ahwahnee lodge, and stayed warm by doing this…

even though it was crazy-cold for tent camping, the scenery was awe-inspiring, like this…

and this…

as we left on the sixth day, with easter on our minds, it was cool to anchor that thinking to the creation-impulses of our god, which are fairly tricky to miss with views like this…

  1. Very impressive that you stayed for two more nights!! Not sure I could’ve done that, but your photos are gorgeous!!

  2. We love Yosemite… and your photos prove how gorgeous it can really be. You’ll be talking about this particular trip for decades! :)

  3. What a great experience for the kids with their parents. Glad you were able to experience all that great weather. At least you were somewhat prepared.
