Happy Trails

I am so excited! Tomorrow we leave for a fun vacation in sunny California. We’re looking forward to spending some time with dear friends and their new little one, soaking up the sights and famous sourdough in San Francisco, and venturing out a little to the gorgeous Yosemite National Park. 

It was funny to see how many of you were surprised (even shocked) at the idea of me camping, outside, in the wild, in the dead center of Yosemite. Come on now, I’m not that girly. I’m not gonna cry over chipping a nail. I won’t whine about the wind messing up my hair. I’ll put on my big girl britches and deal with it! (At least for a little while.)

So when you go to bed on Sunday night, think of little ol’ me tucked away in our little tent…
Yep, no internet, no TV, no conditioned air for that matter. I think it’s terribly romantic! (Remind me of this when I start complaining about the mosquitos and lack of indoor plumbing.) Just me, my Mister and the wild outdoors.
Speaking of wild…
There’s just one little (err big) detail that scares me a bit – Grizzly Bears. Lord help me if I wake up to this thing breathing over me. We have been reading up on what to do if we were to encounter a bear. Speak calmly and slowly, don’t look it in the eyes, don’t run, etc. One site went into more detail, if the bear actual begins attacking you, it is best to lie face down with you legs spread apart to keep the bear from easily flipping you over and keeping your arms over your neck to protect the jugulars! While I am sure this information would prove to be quite helpful in the event we did encounter a bear, all it is doing right now is totally freaking me out!
Can you scratch my back honey? I think NOT! Hopefully these pics will be the most of a grizzly I will ever see. However, how cute are these little boogers? Quite tempting, but where there are babies there are surely mamas! 
I will be bringing my laptop and of course the camera will be glued to my face. I hope to have lots of pictures and fun stories to share. I am really looking forward to the time away, if there is one thing that’s sure to bring a smile to my face, it’s traveling.

Happy Trails!
