Jason and I stayed at Rush Creek Lodge in Groveland, CA, just outside of Yosemite National Park’s Big Oak Flat entrance, when we visited the park in June. It was our second stay at the lodge, so I thought I’d share our experience there.
When we moved to Illinois, I rediscovered the joy of the public library. I’ve devoured books ever since I got my new library card.
I set a goal to read 13 books this year, one more book than I got through last year. But thanks to the deadline-driven nature of a library book, I surpassed that goal. Now I’m just excited to see how many books I do read this year.
Here are my thoughts on three recent reads: Travels with Charley by John Steinbeck, Talking to Animals by Jon Katz, and Rising Strong by Brené Brown.
Surprise, surprise — Jason and I traveled to California for our Summer 2017 vacation!
Ok, this probably isn’t a huge surprise to those who know me or who have followed me for a while.
This summer we did change things up a bit. Instead of flying into San Francisco or Las Vegas en route to Yosemite National Park, we flew into Reno, NV and drove through the Lake Tahoe area.
