gorgeous ROCK! :) love the falls and the pines!


Nothing better than rock and waterfalls, in my humble opinion! Gorgeous shots! I'm happy to hear you guys are happy in sunny Florida, but gosh, I know I would really miss snowy winters. I often complain about winter, but I do love it!


What a great place - I arrived at Yosemite at night, under a full Moon, the pillar of El Capitan look like a pillar of ice - wonderful, unforgettable.

PS: thankfully the run of hot days is over here.


Beautiful pictures. It brought back memories of when we were there in 2011.


Dearest Sallie;
OMG, what a wonderful trip you had and GORGEOUS pictures of Yosemite park!!! I can see the grand scale of the place. Actually it is one of my dream trip place in America (several trip to Europe, never been to America). Great picturs for linking to the scenic weekends♡♡♡

Sending you lots of Love and Hugs from Japan to my dear friend in America, xoxo Miyako*


The falls are beautiful! Glad you got to see them before they dried up. The only thing I know about El Capitan is that Jack Osbourne successfully scaled it. It looks like a very difficult rock to climb. But beautiful!


Great to be back catching up on your blog and enjoying some armchair travel, amazing what we see and learn from each others blogs. Delighted you enjoyed the trams!


Another beautiful montage, this time of one of my favorite national parks. Dianne


Everywhere looks so mighty and majestic-it is a vast area compared to anywhere in UK!


You have some beautiful shots here. I especially like the last one of the iconic mountain. We were there only once, back in 1987 in the winter. We could not go very far as you had to have chains on your tires, but we did get a few nice photos.

The landscape here is wonderful. All that lovable rock. And the waterfalls create a dreamscape. Beautiful photos.


SUMMER!! Summer, come on SUMMER!!!



Gosh - I thought you hopped on a plane, Sallie, because you were tired of the tropical splendor! Great photo of El Capitan.


Wonderful shots of a magnificent place.


Sallie, wonderful look back at Yosemite. It is a beautiful park! Your photos are beautiful! Have a happy weekend!


Oh I really want to visit this park..

This where I learned how to do watercolors! They have a great art program - every week another professional artist for most of the year. Would go this year, but the fires prevented us from going. Thanks for sharing - it's good to see back all the familiar sites:)

It must be a wonderful way to travel. I'm happy you shared it. We are limited by hubby's health and 4 cats, these days!

Lovely rocks and greens,

that I admire always.


We went to Yosemite in 2005 and loved every minute we were there. Y
Sallie, your photos captured the magnificence and awesome Vistas.


Wonderful memories ! I'd like to visit the parks during spring or fall. Less people and so beautiful things to see. Thanks, Sallie !


So majestic, Sallie. I'm so glad you revived these from your archives.


I have visited the Yosemite Park years ago and still remember the smell ! It smelled so good and what a beautiful place!

PS. Now your link takes me directly to your blog and not to the Google+ thing anymore, lol !

a spirit of simplicity

I have never been to Yosemite but hope to visit that part of the country one day.

This is a place I've never been and would love to go! What magnificence...amazing photos, too! I'm so glad you shared them my friend! Sweet hugs!


Beautiful photos. I have a book by famous photographer Ansel Adams who loved that part of the country and took many photos of it. Valerie


Great photos Sallie! I remember going here when our son was a toddler and living in San Diego. I thought it was an incredible place and think we are due for another trip. Glad you are still enjoying Florida.


Gorgeous photos. That's high on my list of must-visit places.


It's really a fabled spot, isn't it? I'd love to visit someday.


I had not been to Yosemite since I was a child so we went for our 60th birthdays and splurged on the Ahwahnee. We did not know the cost of a room when we booked it, but it was worth it.

It was October, so unfortunately the falls were dry.



Beautiful national park. Very scenic and peaceful. I would love to be there.


SO lovely! You took wonderful pics. There is so much to love about my native state- glad you got to visit! Have a great week :)

Reach Beyond Limits

Gorgeous pictures of the park, and I would very much love to visit one day!


Hi Sallie,

I can understand why someone would miss mountains like these! Gorgeous and thrilling, these must be a joy to experience and how lucky you were to see the waterfalls!

Beautifully invigorating photos, thank you!

Great flashback!


These are memories for me, too: I grew up not too far from Yosemite, and visited a few times. It is a wonderful place. Thanks!
