Yo, Yo, Yo, Yosemite

Having a wonderful time in Yosemite.
Took a couple of challenging hikes -- second photo down we were just a quarter of the way in on one and still smiling.
The next photo down shows part of the steep path in and up further along the trail.
On Yom Kippur we hiked the Mist Trail up to Vernal Falls and then onto Neptune Falls. Elevation gain of over 2000 feet; tomorrow we will go higher.
Taking advantage of this park's many wonders and offerings. Great bicycling on the paths, twenty of us on a morning walk accompanied by a photographer from the Ansel Adams Gallery, and completed our first paintings in a Plein Air with Watercolor class from the Art Education Center here. Jean Bradshaw, our instructor, is a real character and very helpful, fun, and encouraging. No surprise that our paintings are quite primitive -- but we both found it very satisfying (maybe we'll show you the results).
