Yosemite in the Fall

This weekend we took a trip to Yosemite with some friends. It was GORGEOUS!

It was a little chilly, but we bundled up and warmed up by riding our bikes around the Yosemite Valley.

Here's our friend, Carol, on her classy cruiser.

Here's the hubby and daughter.

The local wildlife trying to ignore all the people staring and taking pictures of it.

This was my first time being in Yosemite in the Fall. I've only ever gone in the summer when it's jam-packed.

I loved all the Fall colors and hardly any people around!
The were 21 of total riding bikes that day. I hope we didn't scare the tourists!

Jay, our fearless leader, Jason and my son, Zach.

Biggles had to stay back at the cabin.

The cabin was quite cozy. Zach found some extra space in the closet!

What a great trip that was. Us Northern Californians tend to forget how lucky we are to live so close to the beauty of Yosemite. We saw busloads of tourists from other countries who came to see it!
