A few weeks ago we took a few days off and went camping in beautiful YOSEMITE national park. The original plan was to meet a bunch of our Utah friends there; camp, hike, play, what not. But...as plans tend to happen no one actually made it out except for Porter, Indo, and myself of course. Luckily Porter and I like each other enough that we really had a blast. The weather was surprisingly warm, crowds were light, rivers not too freezing to swim in and soooo beautiful.
Yes, above really is an actual brown BEAR. There we were just busy riding our bikes enjoying the gorgeous scenery...when Porter abruptly stops and whispers "Was that a bear?!" (As if the bear might hear him and attack) But I definitely didn't believe him, I was actually laughing when I got off my bike to look at...what actually was a momma grizzly bear just munching apples up in a not-so-stable apple tree. And yes, bears do run rampant in Yosemite so I guess it wasn't so wild we saw one, but so up close and personal was pretty cool. And it was cool until oblivious Indo, after about 10 minutes of watching finally realizes what we're looking at and starts barking at her. For the first time the bear stops eating and stares Indo down...we then hopped on our bikes and booked it as fast as we could outta there.
Half Dome. 18 miles, 10 hours, and 2 giant blisters later...WE DID IT!
Couldn't walk the next two days, totally worth it.
Thanks Yosemite, see you next year.
So Porter got a Video camera for his birthday...okay so I gave it to him but it's really for me. I know all you wives know what I'm talking about. So above here is the first attempt of putting US into a music video. We're pretty much in fast forward the whole time in order to fit the entire trip in, kinda makes ya sick I think :) I've got a lot of learning to do but it's much more entertaining than pictures.
