Yesterday, we relaxed. Marilyn Googled easy Mexican pork chops for our celebration of el Cinco de Mayo. They were delicious, and we tried the Lime Beer-rita that we bought at Sam’s the other day. It was good also.
On the 3rd, Marilyn was able to get the Yosemite National Park entrance sign on our drive into the park. Unlike most parks, the sign does not have a pull-off in front of it for picture taking. I failed to put it on the blog for the 3rd, so, hear it is.
Today, the 6th, we headed back into the park for the third time to take two short hikes. The first was to the Lower Yosemite Falls, and the second was to Mirror lake.
We parked the Jeep at the Valley Visitor Center parking lot, and then took the Park Shuttle Bus to Stop 6 so we could walk to the Lower Yosemite Falls. On our walk in, I took a couple of pictures of this Pacific Dogwood tree flowers.
On our way to lunch, we saw this woodpecker. Once again, we ate lunch at the Valley Lodge Food Court. We had thought that that woodpecker might be the only wildlife we would see today, but when we got off the shuttle at the Mirror Lake Stop, we found these three deer.
As we drove out of the park in the afternoon, the rain even became hail, but we arrived back at Park Sierra safe and sound.
Hugs, and type at you later.
