I've left my mom's house in Bass Lake and am now in Fallon, Nevada, where my dad lives. Mom lives near Yosemite National Park, so I decided to drive through the park to get to the other side (saving much time!)
It was a beautiful ride through the park and I stopped many times for photos. It was nice because the park was not crowded. The ride was long though and sometimes, I felt like I was the only person on the road!
I had to drive over the Tioga pass and have to admit that I wasn't so fond of the downhill part. It was winding roads with no guard rails. (harrowing is how i like to describe it!) Not my favorite kind of driving. My brakes started smoking when I finally got to the bottom, so I had to pull over for about an hour to let them cool off. Then I hosed them down and was on my merry way again.
Today I head to Reno where I am meeting up with crazy girls Nancy and Ginny. I am teaching 2 classes at Nancy's shop and then we will spend 2 days playing.
