Today was a do chores and hang around our beautiful campsite kind of a day. Also resting up after our 12 hour day yesterday, when we drove to the Mariposa Grove of Giant Sequoia trees, which are located south of the Yosemite Valley. It's about a 200 mile round trip, plus we drove to Glacier Point which added another 35 miles. Long day but worth every bit of it. We were delayed along the way by the ever present construction, and also by a forest fire that was started by lightning the night before. By the time we came thru they basically had the fire under control, but there were still patches of flame right next to the road. We have pictures of that as well as the rest of our day which we'll be posting soon. The haze from the fire made for pictures from Glacier Point that were not nearly as good as they would be on a clear day. It still gave Nancy an overview of what's to come when we visit the Valley. We're going to postpone that visit for a couple of days, maybe until next week, so that maybe the haze will be gone.
I continue to be amazed at how beautiful this campground, and in particular our campsite are. I've been to a lot of campgrounds and campsites since starting my travels, and this one is either at or very near the top of my list of favorites. We will be staying here the entire time that we're in this area.
We have a campfire going right now and are about to roast cheddar wurst sausages over the fire along with corn on the cob. It's been a beautiful day today with temperatures in the upper 70's and a slight breeze. It's supposed to be like this for the remainder of our time in this area. Life is good!
