We had a wonderful day today. We took our first drive into Yosemite National Park. We used our Golden Age pass and it saved us another $20 entrance fee. We can visit the park as many times as we want for free. We plan to make many trips to see it all. Today we visited Yosemite Valley.

Yosemite Valley is world-famous for it's impressive waterfalls, cliffs, and unusual rock formations. We had visited the park way back in 1986, but we had only one day to see it all. That was back when you only had two weeks vacation and had to get back home in time for work. It is wonderful to know we have all the time we want to visit this time. :-)

The park is absolutely outstanding. It is hard to capture the beauty with photos. I am going to try to add about 25 photos. It may take DAYS to get them added, the connectivity is very slow here. We are loving this Escapee Park. The people are so friendly. We took a tour of the park on a golf cart this morning before going to Yosemite. I can see why they have a waiting list of 80 people trying to buy a lot here. I will do a separate update about this awesome Escapee park later. More later from California.
