Yosemite - finally!
It has long been a dream of Bill's to visit Yosemite NP. Yosemite was the first National Park. It was actually established by Abraham Lincoln. John Muir, founder of the Sierra Club, called it the most beautiful place on earth. It also happens to be the birthplace of modern rock climbing - an avocation that Bill pursued in one of his past lives. We did a lot of hiking up to waterfalls. Did you know that Yosemite has two of the ten highest waterfalls in the world? We climbed up to Vernal Falls and Bill went to the top of Yosemite Falls which is 2,700 feet high. Debbie hiked to Mirror Lake. Although there was snow at the higher altitudes, the weather was sunny and nice. Here are some pics.
