We woke up the morning of our day in Yosemite to the sound of rain. Which was fine, because we were in an RV! We ate a nice warm breakfast, packed up, and headed into the park. GPS said it would take us about an hour and a half to make it to the valley, but we were only a little bit into our drive before we saw this. Our rainy morning gave us extra drama in the view. Clouds, hovering below the mountains. And everywhere we looked, waterfalls. In looking at one, we would almost miss the next one.
The only time I had been to Yosemite before was for my honeymoon. We realized as we drove into the park on April 4 that it was exactly 10 1/2 years since our wedding day. What a great place to spend our anniversary and a half. When we had come in October 2002, I remember driving into the valley and feeling my heart stop at the beauty and majesty of it all. But in the fall, there are no falls. I honestly don't even remember seeing Bridal Veil fall, the only waterfall in Yosemite that runs year round. Coming in the spring was a completely different experience.
10.5 years ago, we snapped this picture up at Glacier Point (which we couldn't revisit since it was still closed for the winter).
