More photographs from our recent day trip to Yosemite National Park:
As you can probably tell, all of these shots were taken from the valley floor. We didn't do any adventurous hikes up to half-dome or bridalveil, as that seems darn near impossible with two little ones in tow, but we did walk all around the valley floor on the wonderful paved bicycle paths.
Elizabeth stayed awake for the duration of the walking (about 4.5 hours - with breaks for lunch and ice cream), but Helen fell asleep for the latter half. My photos don't do justice to the beauty of this park and the wondrous rock formations that were carved out so long ago.

I hadn't been to Yosemite since it flooded in 1996/1997 (was up there for new year's and got trapped when a warm storm melted the snowpack and the Merced River flooded). Everything seems to have been very nicely restored. It is $20 to enter the park though, plus the cost of gas makes the trip a little more expensive than it used to be.
