To balance all of Nathan’s posts about shooting, I figured I needed to add something else 🙂
When our work told us that the week between Christmas and New Year’s would be required vacation, I was initially really annoyed because we wanted to save our vacation for the honeymoon next year. Plus, my family does a lot more celebrating before Christmas rather than after. But when it was clear we wouldn’t be able to get an exception, I decided to make the best of it! We will be going home to my family for Christmas, but then we’re going to do a winter trip to Yosemite.
Nathan and I have not had a chance to get to Yosemite yet and I’ve heard that it is absolutely beautiful in Winter. And much less crowded!

We plan to camp (hopefully we won’t freeze our butts off!) and do some hiking in the Valley since apparently there’s unlikely to be much snow there. But there are other areas in the park where we can hopefully try out snowshoeing or cross country skiing. Plus, there’s an outdoor ice skating rink in Curry Village with views of Half Dome – how amazing is that?
