I was in Yosemite National Park 2 years ago. The bridal falls really hit my heart. A great place for a family retreat.

Happy SS on your great shot!

Glaciers have always been fascinating to me. Especially the remnants of past glaciers.

Sorry to hear about Michael's cold but glad he gave you the gift of relaxing into sleep while you held him. Be well.

Cool! It reminds me a tiny bit of Black Cap mountain in the White Mountains of New Hampshire.

Thanks for your comment on my blog!
