As the end of March will soon be approaching, we decided we should start planning where to go when we leave Texas. Since we’ve yet to visit Yosemite National Park, that is where we’re setting our sights.
Unfortunately I had no luck in getting reservations at the campgrounds in the park, so we are looking for suggestions on somewhere else nearby, preferably Forest Service campgrounds or boondocking spots. We really wanted to stay in the Valley, even though we know the campgrounds will be crowded, just to be able to easily walk or take the shuttle to the trails, and we intend to keep checking for cancellations. But if anyone has other ideas, please let us know. We hope to be there sometime in mid-May when the waterfalls are at their peak and before school is out for the summer.
We also plan to do the 395 drive, and visit Sequoia and King’s Canyon National Park. We have lots of research to do!
The other day we hiked a trail in Bentsen State Park and discovered that palo verde trees get pretty yellow flowers on them.
We also spent a long time watching this beautiful Altamira oriole eating grapefruit.
We probably get at least a half dozen anonymous spam comments on the blog every day, and although it is just a matter of marking them as spam and deleting them, we have gotten tired of it. So as of today, all anonymous comments will be blocked. Sorry if this causes anyone inconvenience.
On another note, Elvis had no problems with his neutering. In fact it didn’t slow him down even a little bit.
Sometimes they just fall asleep wherever they stop. Kittens are so cute!
