Meredith's and Dave's Excellent Adventure

Meredith's mom (Michelle) says this makes her tired just reading it. I say I'll do the hike if you get me a golf cart.

So I'll hand the mike over to Meredith who says:

Dave and I have had a great trip time on our California road trip. We've done a lot of hiking, driving, and eating lots of good food. Here are a few pictures from the trip...

Nancy lives near Big Trees State Park, so we went to see the sequoias:

After two nights in Arnold, we went on to Yosemite for a day. The park was beautiful and had lots to do.  We decided to do the popular hike to the top of Yosemite falls.

Pat says: this looks like a postcard or a jigsaw puzzle!

On the way up...

Finally at the top. It was like being on the stairmaster for 2.5 hours to get up there. It was not as fun as some of the other hikes we've done, and the views were actually better on the way than actually up at the top.

Then we headed to Big Sur for two days, which definitely lived up to expectations in terms of scenery.

McWay falls:

And this afternoon we made it to Morro Bay. We're here for two days and then on to Santa Barbara and LA.

Meredith concludes: We're probably going to do a little less hiking now, and spend some time relaxing on the beach. We are thinking of going kayaking though - apparently you can get close to seals and sea otters that way.
