Well, we will be leaving WA on Saturday after visiting Mt. Rainier, Olympic and Cascades National Parks! I'll be sharing those memories with you soon, but as promised last Tuesday, today I'm sharing more of our California trip with you.
We spent 4 days in Yosemite National Park. This place is packed with people and filled with mountains, waterfalls and wildlife. One of the most impressive sights is the Upper and Lower falls. There's also a pretty little church in the park.
When we left Yosemite, we stopped in Placerville to visit one of my honey's friends and made a quick trip to South Lake Tahoe.... The lake was beautiful but way too commercialized for me.
After our visit to Placerville, we had 2 more national parks in CA to see, Lassen Volcanic National Park and Redwoods.
Lassen was absolutely beautiful. A lot of it was still closed off due to record snow fall this past winter but we saw enough to be satisfied with the trip. Along with the raw beauty of the volcano, there are places where hot, bubbling pots of green, slimy, sulphur boil up from the ground....UGH!
It is amazing to find one extreme or another on the same mountain.
Next week I'll share the last National Park we visited in California along with the one in Oregon we saw so I hope you drop by for Tuesday Treasures, Thursday Thoughts and Saturday Spotlight.
