Planning for Rob's birthday weekend in Yosemite continues despite sour weather reports. The trip was nearly cancelled when rain was predicted for this weekend but now that the forecast is snow, we're still on.
Snow in Yosemite Valley is an amazing sight. It is so vastly different from the experience of visiting in the crowded summer and well worth the potential frostbite. The Ahwahnee Hotel (my favorite) is never more stately than when surrounded by ice and snow. Can't you just picture yourself curled up with a hot toddy next to those giant fireplaces? If you have never been, make plans to head East sometime in the next few weeks. Don't forget to pack your long underwear and your camera.
