Travelblog Unplugged

I spent the entire weekend with no laptop, no cell phone (which really isn't that much of a stretch, as I never have it on anyway) and no internet access. We decided to head up to Yosemite which is about 3 1/2 hours drive from our house. We were hoping there would be snow - and there was. I love going there in winter because it isn't crowded and the scenery is amazing.

And then it started to snow. And snow. And snow. We woke up to a winter wonderland.

And then we had to dig our car out ....

But at least we weren't these people:

The most wonderful part of yesterday was that once we were done frolicking in the snow, we got into our car and drove out of the valley, leaving the snow behind in about 20 minutes. I seriously don't know how you cold-climate people do it every day. Seriously.

On this date: In 1789, George Washington is elected the first US President.

Wow! My wife and I honeymooned in Yosemite, but we always talk about going back in the winter when there's snow.

Looks amazing...

Ooh! You should totally go Jay. You can hike all the way to Mirror Lake and not see another person for the whole 1.2 miles. It's heaven. Well, heaven on a very cold day.
