Living in California it is hard to imagine not having visited Yosemite; but this year another brother, John, and his wife Patti visited - and asked if we would like to go to Yosemite with them. We took a whirlwind trip up to the high country to show them the highlights of this vast park. It's an impossibility, though. Most visitors see the Yosemite Valley, but see none of the high country, the giant sequoia groves, Hetch Hetchy, the Tioga pass, the high alpine lakes, the charming historic Wawona Hotel. Ah, well, we did the best we could in two days.

The Merced River

Being a fan of all things historical, I took them to the Ahwahnee Hotel.

Patti, John and Anna at the first overlook...

And here's Patti enjoying a little light reading in the Ahwahnee lobby.

Finally,a little hiking... and I got to try out the new and improved hip joint.
