I shared the photos above last summer. It was taken on our first trip to Yosemite National Park.
Currently reading (again) and engrossed in Annie Leibovitz's Pilgrimage. I highly recommend this book if you are a fan of Annie's work, and/or you're a history buff and interested in famous and notable Americans. The fascinating section on John Muir and Ansel Adams and their ties to Yosemite reminded me of our time there last August.
We are returning very soon, this time with a Scamp. Should be fun. These are old pictures but hopefully there will be new ones to post shortly.
(only a few weeks before we visited Yosemite, three hikers fell to their deaths at Vernal Falls, above. I still remember looking at the 'Missing' flyers with their pictures, shocked. Two of the bodies were finally found five months after the accident, after river levels receded. So sad.)

loving spring here and witnessing nature's reawakening. the flowers in bloom are always a favorite. the kids and I went to the farmers market last week. we came home with a few friends. strawberry, peppermint, basil. not pictured: sun gold cherry tomato, pink variegated lemon tree.
