Yosemite is Beautiful (or "How We Were Stupid and Hadn't Visited Yosemite Until Now")

My wife and I went to Yosemite for a 3 day vacation this past weekend and I can't believe we've lived in California for 11 years and hadn't visted yet. It's every adjective that you would guess it is - Majestic. Grand. Awe-Inspiring. Marvelous. Huge. Impressive. Fantastic.

I was pleased to see pretty much everyone wearing masks and being very pandemic-friendly. That's not to say there went a bunch of people -- there absolutely were, but everyone was playing by the rules really well.

This was essentially a first-pass scouting mission. We went on only one hike, a small one, to Lower Yosemite Falls and investigated everything in Yosemite Valley to find out where we'd like to camp, hike, take photos and generally relax on what I can only imagine will be our many visits in the future.
