I finished a 54″ square quilt from the remaining blocks from the Fed Ex wedding quilt. Kevin’s sisters and nieces all had a chance to win this in a raffle we held.Two 49er, one Steeler and one Raider fan pillows. The pillow forms were late in arriving at my sister-in-law’s home, so the guys will have to wait a bit.
Kevin and I spent six days backpacking in Yosemite National Park. We had 14,636’ in elevation gain (4,267’ low point – 10,257’ high point) and finished with 79.3 miles and are pretty happy!
Tuolumne River in Pate Valley.
Gnat protection: The gnats were a huge nuisence at this elevation and keeping covered up made me a much nicer person.
Granite slab for a quick break!
Second night tent spot above Waterwheel Falls.
Milky Way over our tent.
Horses transporting stuff to the High Sierra Camps.
Beautiful trail work.
2.11 oz. bear canister and my cooking set up.
Ragged Peak reflection in Upper Young Lake (10,255′ elevation).
A beautiful lunch spot near 10,000′ in elevation.
Some switchbacks we navigated. The trees were pretty interesting here.
Kevin fooling around on granite.
.8 miles to go to the finish! Woo Hoo!
My designated driver!
We swung by the valley to see the chapel we were married in 28 years ago. It never changes.
We are so thankful to Kevin’s sister and our brother-in-law for hosting us and letting us borrow a vehicle and all around being the BEST any family could ever want! ~~ even if they act silly with the items they recieved for free at the Mariposa County Fair!
Thank you Steve and Vicki for hosting us at your peaceful home.
