We went to Yosemite last weekend to get out of dodge and to avoid TVs. We had envisioned lots of hiking and talking with trees. In a twist of plans, it turned into a winter wonderland with two straight days of heavy snow. So, in the end we didn't see all that much of Yosemite because roads were closed but we snow-shoed, drank hot chocolate, sat by the fire, read a ton and successfully avoided Trump's inauguration. Here are some pictures of the quick weekend getaway - we can't wait to go back (in the summer and warm weather!).
Oh and p.s. we stayed at the Rush Creek Lodge - a new lodge - we would give a solid review - great property and location, but they are still working out the kinks!
