This morning we woke up at a 4 year old screaming and crying at 5:30 am. This continued on until we for up at 8 am. We were not happy. Once we were awake, we ate breakfast and packed up camp. We drove to the local store to buy bread and a bottle of water. We picked up some information about the park and headed off to the trailhead. Before going up the trail, we ate sandwiches and chips. The trail we hiked was the 4 mile trail. The trail is 4.6 miles one way. It took us about two and a half hours to hike up, and the views were spectacular! At the top, we could see half done. Hopefully we will get the permit to hike it. At the top, people were being complete idiots by taking pictures on rocks that were passed the railings. It makes me nervous because if they slip they will die. I guess that's just natural selection at its finest. At the top, we were taking pictures and a thunderstorm came rolling in. Just as the storm came in we all felt a static charge that raised the hair on our heads and arms up. So, we got the hell out of dodge. We didn't want to get struck by lightning. On the way down, we were making good time. We passed a guy that looked like a chef from the travel channel. We carries on our way for maybe 50 feet until he caught up with us. So, we started taking to pass the time and come to find out it was Guy Fiettei!!! He was with his family just getting away from the house for awhile. We got to meet a real life celebrity, and he was awesome (not a terrible person). Once down from the mountain, we called our parents to tell them the news. We drive to our campsite where we set up camp and ate dinner. Our site is by the river just outside of Yosemite and its nice and quiet. Maybe we will get some sleep tonight.
