Yosemite through anothers eyes....

It is always good when we can get to Yosemite anytime during the year. We were able to go last Monday for the day. We had the sister missionaries for dinner about three weeks ago and in talking with them they had never seen Yosemite. Steve just couldn't stand for this, so he told them we would take them. Their P-Day was Monday and we picked them up at 6:30 a.m. (not so early for them, but it was early for me). It is so fun to see the reaction of people when they first see "our favorite place on earth". We went up to Glacier Point first. Of course the view, as always, was perfect. They really like it, then it was down to the valley. Unfortunately there wasn't much water in the falls, zero in Yosemite, a trickle in Bridalveil. We took the shuttle up to Happy Isles and walked around a bit, pointed out the rock fall, how the big flood had washed out the bridges and such. We walked back along the river and had a snack, then walked over to the Ahwahnee, it is such a beautiful old hotel. They both wanted to come back and stay there. We had lunch in the village enjoying the outdoors and people watching. I don't think anyone went by without the sister saying hi to.
They had to be home by 5:45 so capped off the day with a stop at El Cap meadow, they were so impressed that we could pick out the climbers on the wall. It was a wonderful day, thanks Sister Needs and Sister Dreschell.
