April-May 2023 | 32 days

Yosemite National Park was a bucket list item that included hiking, so we wanted to do it sooner than later. King’s Canyon and Sequoia National Parks are nearby, as is Mono Lake — which has always fascinated me — so we visited those too. And we hit Santa Fe, Sedona, and Death Valley on the way there, and Salt Lake City on the way back, to break up the long drives. 

The original plan was good. But record snow in the Sierra Nevada meant that many things we planned to do or see were still closed in May.  

Other recent trips


Aruba, Bonaire, and Curaçao

January-February 2023 | 28 days ◆ Bonaire was beautiful though there isn’t much to do if you don’t scuba dive; still glad we went. We liked the beaches on Aruba though it seemed the most crowded. We loved Curaçao and can see returning and spending more time.

North Wales and the Lake District

September-October 2022 | 34 days ◆ On our first trip to Great Britain we hit many of the typical highlights. This trip was more about walking and nature; villages and small towns. (And castles.) We balanced that with a week of more cultural and entertainment pursuits in London.

March-April 2022 | 25 days ◆ We finally got to take our trip to Spain that was cancelled due to COVID the day before we were supposed to leave in March 2020. So a two year delay. We loved the architecture, which was our main theme. So much of it and so interesting.
