In an attempt to see more of the beauty right around us in California we decided it was time to check out Yosemite. We camped right outside the park for a couple of nights and spent a few days exploring some seriously gorgeous scenery. Our first day there we woke up at sunrise to get an early start, and one of the most beautiful scenes was just driving through the park as the sun rose over the mountains and insanely tall trees.
We hiked to Mirror Lake where we saw a couple of fawns with their mama, we checked out Lower Yosemite Falls, and hiked mist trail up to Vernal Falls. When they say "mist trail" they're being awfully conservative, it felt like we were in a serious downpour, and it was amazing. There was such a bright rainbow over the falls, we couldn't get over it. Or at least Margaret couldn't. The morning we left we also got up at sunrise to get to Glacier Point before the crowds arrived. We spent an hour or so up there enjoying the view and playing some music that Corey filmed.
After a couple of days exploring nature we were both so sore we could hardly imagine walking one step further, and also so inspired and glad we'd gone. Already can't wait to go back.
