Scotland, here we come!

California poppies decorated the Merced River valley on the drive to and from Yosemite.




It was time to dust off the backpacks and head for Yosemite National Park. We start our Scotland trek May 8, so we thought we should begin our warmups. Diligent Sue has been taking long walks around the neighborhood, so Reg huffed and puffed a bit to keep up. After a stroll around the valley, we ended the day with what we really came for: Haagan Daz ice cream bars!

The weather was perfect, just like it will be in bonnie Scotland!

It can be tough to keep your eyes on the trail in Yosemite Valley. Reg showed his talent for sitting by the trail and eating the lunch Sue had prepared.
