Now, our trip was a lot of fun, but we still drove a lot, a whole lot! So, there were plenty of bored in the car pictures like this...
Just outside of Yosemite was this funky little town. Pretty much all of the buildings had murals and all of the stores had something interesting.
As soon as we got into Yosemite we saw a coyote! He ran straight up to our car and then sat on the side of the road, and somehow this is the best picture I got...
We were driving through at a pretty perfect time. Look how beautiful the lighting was.
We pulled into a campground the first night at dark, so when we woke up to see this, it was pretty amazing!
We were planning on making it to Mono Lake the first night, but stopped when we ran out of light. Turns out we were about 20 minutes away! So, we made a stop, and was not disappointed! Mono Lake has these natural formations called Tufas and were seriously a sight to see! I felt like I was in The Little Mermaid while I was there! See...
It was pretty neat, wondering through those towers of rock! I took waaaay to many pictures there, but it was so pretty! I couldn't help it!
We stopped pretty much anytime something looked interesting. Which meant lots of exploring random spots.
We found a few alien hot spots along the way...
We were rained in for most of the next day. There was a huge thunder storm causing flash floods and everything! We were pretty excited to be 'stuck' at the hot springs for most of the day. We did end up getting in a short hike at Zion though.
We got in a few more hikes the next day. I'm pretty sure we could've spent a whole week at Zion. It was beautiful! There is so much to see, and it's something new and different at every turn!
Aren't those steps amazing?! I felt like I was Indiana Jones or something!
That picture, that looks like a little puddle... it's big pools at the bottom of the canyon. the trail was so narrow you could look straight down. They had a chain there for you to hold as you were going around! It was a little scary, but neat at the same time!
Well, I think I've given enough of a picture overload for now! Next up, the Grand Canyon!
