Where I stayed
What I did
Dinner at Chilis
I have been in nine countries and 42 states, including Hawaii and Alaska. I have not seen anything anywhere that is as impressive as Yosemite. When we first got in and were staring at the canyons in awe, Don looked at me and said, "Of all of the churches I have been to- this one is my favorite". I'll have to admit that I'm in total agreement on that.
When you visit, try to enter in the southern entrance and go in on 41. When you come through the tunnel, you are immediately in Ansel Adams Land. El Capitan on your left, Half Dome on your right and all the waterfalls and splendor you could ever ask for in every direction. Of all of the national parks we have been to, this was the most impressive- by a wide margin.
We had a dickens of a time getting there though
Turns out, we weren't the only ones that thought that going to Yosemite would be a good idea today. Everybody else in California and neighboring states had the same idea. The place was like Disneyworld, only colder.
I try my best to be add something humorous with these posts but I just asked Gary at dinner if he could remember anything funny that happened. Neither of us could so I'll leave you with this:
A horse walks into a bar, right?... Bartender says "Hey Pal, why the long face?'
The pictures tell the story better tonight than I ever could. Enjoy your time at church...
