Thursday, Michelle and I left work early and drove up to the great town of Fresno. While some would get excited knowing that the big fresno fair was happening while we were in town, I can assure you that wasn't the reason why we were there!
Fresno was the rest stop for spending the day in Yosemite National Park on Friday. After spending my first time in Yosemite (only one day unfortunately), I will definitely say that this place lives up to the hype. If I had to sum up the park with one word, it would be VAST. I will definitely be going back sometime, for sure. Secondly, no pictures do the justice, but I will at least make an attempt:
El Capitan at sunrise
Nevada Falls from below
Large rocks and Nevada Falls
Half Dome (which is now on "the list")
Yosemite Valley (B+W) near sunset
Saturday, we headed over to San Francisco for my buddy Jeff's wedding, where it was good to catch up with some buddies from college, and I may have had a few too many adult beverages. Fortunately for you - no pictures from that!
Sunday, we took the 1/PCH from San Francisco down to Paso Robles. If you've never done this drive - definitely put in on your "list". This was my 3rd time, and it never gets old...
Cliffs overlooking (lots of) ocean
A rare freshwater waterfall into the pacific
Towards the end of the drive, we stopped in Cambria for some more photo ops:
Sunset reflecting on a rock
More sunset on rock
Rays through the rocks
Water making an "ampitheatre" of sorts
In Paso Robles, we stopped at a rather familiar place for a little wine tasting as well. Not as scenic as the above pics, but you get the point. Last name bias aside, it was hands down the best tasting wine I've ever had!
25+ hours of driving 1,200 miles - definitely a solid weekend!
