From Volcanoes to Granite Mountains


Upon entering the employee housing in Yosemite National Park, there are signs in the windows stating, “Don’t take Yosemite for Granite.” From our land of volcanoes to the land of granite peaks and mountains, we bask in the wonder of it all. Our son, Cory, is an interpretive naturalist in Yosemite.

Every time we visit this amazing park, we are so very grateful that our family lives in truly awe inspiring places where the world greets us at our doorsteps. Join me in some jaw dropping scenes from Yosemite.
