On Saturday DH and I decided to go for a drive. Even though it had been sunny and gorgeous for several days beforehand, it was rainy and gloomy on Saturday. We still wanted to get out of the house though. We picked a city that is fairly close, but not somewhere we'd spent any time. We saw the signs to Yosemite, but decided it was too far. Until we made it to the first city we picked. At that point the sign said we were only 24 miles away, so we went for it. It was so worth the drive. Because it's still early in the season there weren't as many people as we've seen there before. There were still a lot of people, but nothing like it is in July.
We saw Half Dome:
and Yosemite Falls:
and sweet little deer.
It was a great trip. I can't wait to go back again once it warms up a bit and we can ride our bikes around in the valley.
