2013 January 13-17 – From Home to Escondido, CA (Part 2)

We were on our way to southern California to avoid some of the BC winter and friends we had planned to visit in LA had to cancel because they were sick with the flu.  This gave us an extra day before we were due to check into the Lawrence Welk Resort in Escondido, so we made a course change and headed to Yosemite.

Most of the roads and trails are closed after November 1st but the main road into the village remains open all year.  It was a beautiful sunny day and Half Dome, El Capitan, and Yosemite Falls were spectacular.                                     Half Dome off in the distance.The rocks had been worn smooth by the flowing water.                          El Capitan, the Guardian of Yosemite.                    Ribbon Falls

             Yosemite Falls                                          The reflections in the river were stunning. After our ‘photo stop’ tour of Yosemite we spent the night in Tulare and drove to Escondido the next day.
