We made our annual spring trip to Yosemite this past weekend. Friday night was extremely chilly with temperatures in the high 30's. We went to the lodge at Curry Village to warm up our insides with a cup of hot coco Saturday morning and waited for the sun to do the same outside. Once we thawed out, we geared up and set out to see the falls. We caught the shuttle from Curry Village to Yosemite Falls stop and made the short 1/4 mile hike to the bottom of Lower Yosemite Falls.
A Lighter snow pack this year made for water falls that are not as raging as in years past but still very impressive. We brought lunch with us and enjoyed the falls for awhile before heading back tot the bus stop. Back at Curry Village we grabbed our bikes and went for a ride around the park. We took a break long enough to snap a shot of the kids on the Sentinel Bridge with a great view of Half Dome in the background. Lizzy and Jackson crashed along the way. It was peace and quite on the way home in the car as all the kids were sleeping. Jennifer and I talked while driving home about how much work a family trip can be, not to mention the usual sleepless night that accompanies it, but is still totally worth it.
