Here we are (I’m the one behind the camera) at Inspiration Point on our first trip as a family to Yosemite National Park. Yes, that’s a soul patch on Tim, and no we didn’t actually hike with our infants’ heads dangling like wet spaghetti. We try to make a pilgrimage to Yosemite each year, be it in spring, summer, or fall, whether we are lucky enough to have the highly competitive reservations for camping or the comforts and conveniences of staying in a cabin or lodge.
As with any place a family visits annually, seeing the pronounced changes in its children from one year to the next, Yosemite will always have a special place in our hearts. For us, it’s where Angelina took her first independent steps right in the Upper Pines Campground (the year after this photo was taken), among other great memories. It was also during the trip when this photo was taken, that Tim very innocently asked me, “So, what do you want to do next?” He, of course, was thinking in terms of eating lunch, hiking up the falls, or something of a more logical nature.
