Well this week I finally caved into my wife and daughter; they have been hounding me for the past 4 years to take them to Yosemite.  I  wanted to go to Southern California and just hang out at Crystal Cove, but we went to Yosemite instead.  What a magnificent place!  Had a great time hiking to a couple of the falls, around Mariposa Grove and just admiring the views.  Truly a work of art.

So I am grateful that I live in the state of California, where the diversity of the landscape is only hours apart; and no matter where you go, it is beautiful in it’s own way.
