Roses,Tulips and Granite Heights

Aren't they beautiful? I received them at work for my Birthday. It really made a long day more tolerable. =)

Flowers sure do brighten a girl's heart.

Then on Saturday my sons came for the day and we got to hear about their trip to Yosemite. They went with a group from church to rock climb and hike to Half Dome.

Due to the drought year, there's less water in the falls than in this picture.

This is Hollin - DS2, on his way up. It's amazing to think of relying on a rope like that.
Their group hiked to Half Dome the next day. It took sixteen hours round trip, alot of it hiked in the dark, but they conquered and returned home safe; tired but happy. Frank and I recalled hiking and camping trips we'd made in the past. It was great to relive the 'glory days' of youth.

Hiking is one thing - love it! But rock climbing? I'm so glad neither of my kids took that up. I'd have worried whenever they were gone. You are a better mother than I am obviously when it comes to things like that.

HaPPy birthday Leslie. The flowers are beautiful. That scenery is just breathtaking. Did you go with them to watch and photograph, or did they take the pictures?
