Vacation with family and no travel trailer!

We were taking a trip for a little family reunion in both Nevada and California and decided that this time we would leave the trailer at home.  Gasp!  A real vacation for me not making beds or cooking!  OK, I love the trailer life but you know it is sometimes fun to be a bit more pampered.

Anyway, we made our way across New Mexico and Arizona to the Giant Sequoias and Yosemite for a quick peak.

Just had to show these smoke stacks and the smoke going straight up in Arizona.09-19-14 15-30-20 - 0005You know that old song “Standin’ on the corner in Winslow, AZ…”, well we found the corner.09-19-14 17-26-36 - 0006Complete with that flatbed Ford.09-19-14 17-27-17 - 002109-19-14 17-28-50 - 003809-19-14 Winslow AZ 0209-19-14 Winslow AZ 03Pretty cool huh?09-19-14 Winslow AZ 06And then on down the road.  The skies were really pretty.09-20-14 11-49-37 - 004209-20-14 15-35-01 - 0045

We really got to the Giant Sequoias a bit late and saw most of them in the dark and rain.  We picked up a couple of hikers and they helped us see some things we might have missed.  Both were physicians and bit off a bit more hike than they could handle, even though they were very experienced.  Took them to their car and saw the sites along with a bear cub that ran across out path on the road and a fawn that jumped in front of us!  Sorry, too dark and camera was not fast enough.  I am sure mamas were very close!

One really great moment was seeing the rainbow over the mountains. 09-20-14 18-25-47 - 0047OK, here we go…09-20-14 Sequoias 0109-20-14 Sequoias 05That really tells you how big this tree was.09-20-14 Sequoias 0609-20-14 Sequoias 07From the Sequoias we headed toward Yosemite, fearing we might run into heavy smoke due to the fires.  We did see some smoke, but it was pretty light at this time.09-20-14 Smoky travel 0109-20-14 Smoky travel 05

That’s it for now.  Will travel Yosemite in the next share.  It may be a day or two. Wifi is limited and so is my tired body!
