Home Sweet Home...But Missing California

Howdy! We are back from a wonderful California trip celebrating Will's graduation. It was at time of great fellowship and seeing God's incredible scenery. I am going to start with our pictures from Yosemite today and then the next few days post the pictures from San Francisco and from San Diego. I only took about 300 pictures! I promise not to post all of them. Great to be home and to sleep in our own beds. Hope your summer is going great!

Old hotel we stayed in on the way up to Yosemite. Established in 1851. We stayed in the room that President Roosevelt stayed in a long time ago. It was very cool.
Will's yummy blueberry pancakes at some little cafe on the way to Yosemite.

El Capitan

Just having fun.

The Awahnee Hotel dining room.

Rainbow in the mist nearing the top of Vernal Falls.

Giant Sequoias

Very big trees. So cool.


Going back to Yosemite brought back so many good memories of the Yosemite Family Encampment. We attended that encampment for many years and it was such a blessing to us all. Yosemite is my number one on the most beautiful places in the world list. Of course I have a lot of lovely places to see yet...and will obviously never see it all but Yosemite will probably always be my number one. Thank you God for this beauty. Until tomorrow and our San Francisco pictures...have a blessed day. Amy
