Camping at Yosemite

What can I say about Yosemite? It is an unbelievably beautiful place. From its world-famous peaks at Half Dome and El Capitan to the valley below, there is no place like it. How fortunate we were to be able to spend time there this summer.

This first picture is the most commonly seen activity around the campsite. Ric cooking. Yum.


And you can see that all creatures great and small enjoy his cooking. This poor guy ran off with a biscuit bigger than his own head!


And Ric's cooking extends beyond our own campsite. These four people - Suzanne, David, Sam, and Chris* - were our neighbors in the Upper Pines Camp Area. Typical Ric, he cooked way too much food and was fortunate enough to find some great hungry neighbors. Thanks, everyone, for the company, the Domino games, and Uno!

* The names are right... I think... but I will double check with Ric and fix them if I screwed up.

And this is the second campsite we had at Yosemite, up in Hodgdon's Meadow. It was warmer than the Pines, but it was still pretty. And we had plenty of room to set up the big tent!


And the other great camping thing to do - enjoy a campfire.
