Vacation - Family Style!

It took forever to finally arrive, but Meg, CJ and I spent almost two and a half glorious weeks on vacation in California. We did quite a bit of sightseeing: the really steep hills of San Francisco, the really big sequoia redwoods, the really big cliffs of Kings Canyon, the really interesting history of gold country, the really beautiful valley of Yosemite, and we even managed to go to a wedding at the end. (really, no fooling!)

It will take forever to sift through all the pics, sorry, but instead of posting them all at once I thought to post a few at a time. The whole lot, once finished, will get posted to our flickr account. And at some point soon, Meg will post a longer recap of Vacation: 2010.

Enjoy!

We often say there is no perfect way in every way. So you may get the answer,Cole Haan Outlet if I choose a pair of fashion and comfortable shoes, the quality may be is not very well, or the price is very high. Cendaktrading.com strikes a balance between these factors. They do it very well: fashion, comfortable, quality and reasonable price. Tod's Men's Shoes

Yeah it was great for sightseeing! I visited the Sequoia National Park this past year just before my orlando bus tours . It is a national park in the southern Sierra Nevada east of Visalia, California, in the United States. This park is a medium sized park with a big grassy area on 2 levels of a hill, baseball field, tennis courts, parking area, and a quaint Japanese garden. The road is windy getting up to the camp-site after the ranger booth but it is an amazing site to see!
