OOTD- Nature!

Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul alike. ...........John Muir

Me and my girl with Half Dome in the background. We will conquer you some day soon!

I have strong kids!

We rode bikes a lot - we love riding bikes at Yosemite! You can tell from my outfit it was cold!
In the sunroom at the Ahwahee
I only went out for a walk, and finally concluded to stay out till sundown, for going out, I found, was really going in...John Muir
There is no more beautiful place, with clearer or bluer skies than this place! Doesn't even look real- the granite against the blue sky with clouds!
View from the Footbridge at Housekeeping Camp!
Last day - see the snow on the mountains?

Walk away quietly in any direction and taste the freedom of the mountaineer. Camp out among the grasses and gentians of glacial meadows, in craggy garden nooks full of nature's darlings. Climb the mountains and get their good tidings, Nature's peace will flow into you as sunshine flows into trees. The winds will blow their own freshness into you and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves. As age comes on, one source of enjoyment after another is closed, but nature's sources never fail.- John Muir
