Reminiscing with John Muir

The Yosemite Valley!

So this roadtrip encompassed towing a trailer from Missouri to San Francisco to move a family member.  As the young, spry one out of the group, I had the privilege of driving most of the way.  We didn’t even spend much time in Frisco, except to cross the golden gate bridge and visit Muir Beach (the trailer prevented us from taking the windy roads to Muir Woods).  Instead, we headed towards the middle of the valley to recuperate at a hotel.  We dropped the trailer for a day and trekked to Yosemite National Park.  It was cold and snowy, but just as rewarding as Mr. Muir described.  His quotes ran through my mind as I witnessed the grandeur of mountains, glacial erosion, and magnificent forests composed of enormous trees.  None of these trees seemed discontented.

I wish we could have spent more time there (hiking, picture taking, relaxing) but we needed to head back East.  Luckily, we were able to take other spectacular detours along the way…see later entries.
