It's our second day here in Yosemite National Park. We are enjoying the beauty and vastness of the park. None of us have ever been here before so it's all new and exciting. It has affected us differently. For instance: I love the giant trees and waterfalls, Alyson likes the running showers in the camp, Nathan loves the interesting people he's met, Andi thinks it's a perfect setting for a film, and Kyle ( the army Brat) says it reminds him of Switzerland.
We met a new friend today. She came from N.Y. city to escape the hustle and bustle. She lost her job and wanted to clear her mind so she could find direction in life.
We had some Baylor alumnis, Mark and Shannon Hamsen, come and bring us a great amount of food today.I'm discovering how united we Baylor Bears are. Thanks to them they not only helped us but even the campers next to us. We were able to share the food they gave.
Speaking of Bears.... Last night, our new camper friend from N.Y. said she saw and heard a growling bear in our camp. We were all in our tent out like a log. I guess we were exhausted from the ride to Yosemite. She heard the bear and called the police. Thank God!
Today was a day for R.and R. We all went our separate ways. Nathan and Andi floated down the river on a raft, I hiked up some mountains and saw some beautiful waterfalls, Alyson and Kyle, both ill, decided to stay at the camp to rest.
We are back on the road tommorrow. Off to Manteca, CA. So now, I shall say goodnight then go back to eating these delicious roasted marshmellows and get to bed. Let's hope there are no more Yosemite bears!
P.S. Pictures are coming. We have not had internet access to post the pictures but as soon as we do you will see them.
