Vacation Greetings: Yosemite to Tahoe

Thoughts after leaving Washington, DC, and touring Yosemite: we left Washington on Monday after a totally depressing weekend watching Congress -- yet again -- play politics rather than address the serious problems we face. We spent Tuesday touring Yosemite and Lake Tahoe, thinking that this glorious country deserves much better than the dysfunctional political system we've recently seen "in action."

Anyway, on to the beautiful West!

You can't help but catch your breath when you get your first glimpse of Yosemite:

and see the amazing Bridalveil Fall:

It was tough to say goodbye to Yosemite....

but a joy to arrive at Lake Tahoe late in the day:

I may not have been "ready for my closeup," but I was happy to get out of that car!
