Yesterday we drove over to Yosemite, about 2 hours East. We entered the park just before nine in the morning and left just beore nine in the evening. It was a glorious day, filled with the most breathtaking scenery and fun. We started off in Yosemite Valley and then drove up to Tioga Pass, through to Mono Lake, then back through Tioga Pass, then home.

Some scenery:

Tenaya Lake

Half Dome from Olmstead Point

Tuolomne Meadows

Mono Lake

It was a long day, but it was quite enjoyable. There’s so much to do at Yosemite, that even a week wouldn’t do it justice, but I feel honored to be able to have even seen as much as I did. It is a rare moment that nature brings me to tears, but after we passed through Tioga pass, the scenery was so breathtaking, I found myself teared up and thanking God for allowing me this beautiful day to learn to appreciate all He’s made for us to enjoy.

Tomorrow, I’ll get on the plane at noon California time and be back in Houston by 6 PM. I will be sad to go, but grateful for this opportunity to see family and friends and spend time in nature (which I love, but never seem to find the time to do).

I will be back to work on Tuesday, tired, but happy.
