whether it be mountains, trees or waterfalls, they are BIG in California. Once our flight landed we hit the ground running. Well as fast as we could move, intending to get something seen, or done or visited before the jetlag set in. So Yosemite National Park was on our list. The trees there are totally magnificent and stately. Redwoods, that even laying on my back (my to my DH's chagrin and I tried to time it where I wouldn't be seen LOL) you couldn't get them all in - at least w/a 28 lens. Then of course we saw El Capitan. Why someone would want to climb a sheer face wall mountain and dangle by their fingertips is beyond me. Totally ruins a really good manicure. Really. The falls were totally outrageous. Gorgeous waterfalls coming down these sheer cliffs showered up a ton of froth and even a rainbow or two with really really cold water.
You could ride, hike or take a tour. We walked and rode. It was totally awesome.
