Yosemite Part Deux

Made it back to the bay area safely. Lots to catch up on. 2.5 weeks before I leave for two months. Just trying to get everything taken care of before then is crazy! So on with the fun stuff.

Say It In Scrap's 6th Challenge is up. Hope you try it out. We scrapped the phrase "Oh No She Di-int." I'm so excited to be creating with such a fun group of ladies. Here is my take on the challenge:Went swimming and spent most of Thursday reading Deception Point by Dan Brown. I'm totally sucked into the story line. Celebrated my Mom's birthday in the fancy restaurant the Ahwahnee.

Went for a bike ride and saw something I'd never seen before. A mountain lion cub crossed the road in front of me. It was carrying a squirrel in its mouth. I was scared that its mom was near by so I didn't linger to take any photos. Jenna, Mom, and I went to the Merced river to cool off after. We helped Jenna pack up and said goodbye. She had to be in Sacramento Saturday morning for an orientation for her study abroad program. Then the four of us went swimming at the Lodge pool. Dan jumped in before I even noticed he was out of his chair!

Woke up early Saturday morning for a bike ride before packing up. We were resting at Happy Isles when a bear cub and mom crossed the road directly behind us. I didn't have a camera with me, but my mom got this blurry photo of them walking through the woods to the Merced river.
My mom wanted to stay and watch them cross the river but the rest of us were ready to put some distance between ourselves and the bears. Mom took this photo of Dan & I outside of our cabin before we sadly sad goodbye to Yosemite.
Thanks for all of your sweet comments while I was gone. They really made me smile. I've missed reading blogs and hope to catch up these next few days. Its so nice to have fast internet back.

Yosemite looks beautiful...I loved all your photos! I haven't been to Yosemite yet, it's on my list of places to visit. I hope we'll get to go sometime soon. But probably not until next summer I'm guessing, since I'm taking classes this fall.

Reading and seeing the photos of the valley makes me miss it but I try to stay away in the summer months. In the winter I go teleskiing with Hayden at Badger Pass. Less crowds. I saw Store Wars and just cracked up. Liam has a new favorite on You tube. said...

You are such a traveler! Love your pics. I can't wait to see the pics you post when you are in Germany.

I got most all of the Vintage Moon line. I didn't get the chipboard things though I thought they were a little too pricey. Can't wait, they should be in today!
