Day Tripping / Part 2 ~ Yosemite

The spectacular scenery of Yosemite would be famous just for its cliffs, forests and meadows, but the waterfalls give it life, movement and special interest.

When you stand outside and breath in, the icy cold air fills your lungs and wraps around you like a blanket; completely surrounding you. With each step you take, the snow crunches beneath your feet.

We stopped all along the way taking in all of this. The waterfalls were somewhat frozen in ice. But Half Dome stood in all its glory.

For more information about Yosemite National Park, you can go to:


  1. I can almost feel the cold snow covering me by looking at those whimsical pictures. Reminds me of Narnia! I can imagine the air from your breathe being turning visible as you let it go, and your throat burning as you breath it back in. Yosemite must have been and is, beautiful!

  2. Wow, that looks gorgeous! I'm gonna check out the website now. Would love to learn more about this bueatiful piece of nature :)

    Not joking! I am going to bug hubby for another vacation now.
    Thanks for sharing such a beautiful place with us!

  4. oh wow ~ this is so beautiful and i can feel the cool refreshing breathe dance off of these :)

  5. Beautiful photos! That frozen waterfall is awesome! I'm just trying to contemplate how cold it must get to freeze something with such a powerful force of rushing water behind it. Your descriptions are so vivid!

  6. Back in the day when it was relatively safe to do this, my friends and I would often hitch- hike up to Yosemite from Merced. We would spend the days exploring and nights around a campfire feeling part of the nature. Yosemite is one of the most beautiful places anywhere, in any season. Your pictures bring back great memories. Angela, you have an artist's eye when you take pictures. You could make a business of it. Love you, Auntie J
