Down in the valley

Yosemite Valley contains seven square miles of deep valleys, broad meadows, amazing waterfalls, ancient trees, and a wide variety of wildlife.

We spent hours tramping around the various paths, hiking until our legs were shaky, and still felt like our time here was too short.

"I still find each day too short for all the thoughts I want to think, all the walks I want to take, all the books I want to read and all the friends I want to see."
