We had a free day today (first one of the trip) our host graciously guided us into Yosemite National Park, this is a truly amazing place , we drove two hours north and climbed to 5000 feet. Talk about right place at the right time, the snow field has had a meter of snow in the last day in a half this is pretty unusual ,they tell me. It is so amazing to think that we only drove for two hours and a lot of that was slow because of the snow on the road, we even put chains on the van, a new experience . All the boys had a ski, some better than other man it is a lot harder than it looks,and I was pretty crappy and had a massive face plant which was pretty funny, we also had some serious snowball fights I was much better at that. It is an amazing place with fantastic scenery and it was great to be able to unwind we have been on the road now full time for 4 weeks. Here are a couple of pictures they don't really do it justice but you will get an idea. Off to Mexico tomorrow leave the motel at 4 am won't get into Mexico until 8.30 pm another long day.
