So here are some highlights from some our trips within the United States, since our return. We have been living in the Bay Area where Jason is temporarily working at his old job. California has experienced more than normal amounts of rain, so the rivers are running with more water and the plants are staying greener for longer into the dry season this year. We went with Alexa’s family to Yosemite National Park to see some of the waterfalls with the massive amounts of water.
We did the common hike up to Vernal and Nevada falls. The next day Jason hiked up to Yosemite point, with good views of Yosemite falls along the way and great views of the entire Yosemite Valley. Although it was Memorial Day weekend and the park was full of visitors, we had great views and the waterfalls were at the height of their power with the high flow in the rivers.
