Weekend in Yosemite

There's no such thing as a bad trip to Yosemite. This was my first visit in nearly two years...I will not let that much time pass again.
In the years I've been visiting Yosemite, this is my first bobcat encounter!

This fellow was stalking something...not sure what...

Still some snow to negotiate...looking up the cliff side almost to Nevada Falls

Someone left an orange peel for this little fellow. (Not me...I don't feed the wildlife)

Just Like Starting Over

Sometimes you need to wipe the board clean and start anew.  Sometimes that is the best for all involved.

Take a hike!

Great advice!  We headed down to the American River via Stagecoach trail and found lots of great thing to snap photos of!

Coming up for air...

Pressure and fatigue can seem endless at times and we all need that little break to relieve that pressure. Even riding my bike, which I love, can be a pain at times..just trying to get ready and get out there. Yesterday when I got home from work my daughters had our dog Dusty on the leash and wanted to go to the park. When they asked me if I wanted to go, my first inclination was to say no because I was so tired from my work day. Instead of heading in to relax, I said that I would go with them. Yesterday was one of the most beautiful days we have had in a very long time. It was around 6pm and the temperatures were in the high sixties and the late afternoon shadows made the greens, greener and the blues, bluer. Off to the park we went and had a really nice stroll with our dog. I'm very glad that I went with them. I'm not much of a photograper...but I liked these that I took from yesterday.

No G.T.O.s here...but lots of goats!

For those of you who missed #goatfest this morning on Twitter, a celebration inspired by #morebikes, here are a few photos of my efficient eating machines...
