Back to Cali! No cross-country roadtrip this year, but lots of fun on the horizon nonetheless :)

Highway 120 Revisited

Yes, I love Bob Dylan :)

On a chilly Monday morning almost, but not quite entirely unlike last year, I left Monterey and drove off towards Yosemite National Park.

A beautiful day. I'm so lucky.

Arriving at the park, the views were as stunning as before.

Last year's biggest fear was almost fulfilled when I ran across these two suckers who were crossing the road in a nice turn with no visibility whatsoever.

First encounter with Yosemite wildlife.

Yeah, I'm talking to you, stupid

And after Tioga Pass I arrived at the US395 crossing, with this magnificent view on Mono Lake

And I arrived in June Lake, which is exactly as I remembered it. I so have to buy a home there by the next 40 years. It's a retirement dream... :p

Tomorrow, HIKING!
