Our visit to Yosemite, Lake Tahoe, and Reno has been a vacation of endurance.
Arriving in Yosemite National Park to visit our son and his fiancé, firefighters used natural barriers of granite walls to help contain 4,500 fire affected acres. Yosemite has backbone!
Quaking Aspens in Lake Tahoe endure carvings in their beautiful bark.
Yet, they are always watching persistently!
There was a huge fire in Tahoe, too. We couldn’t see the lake until the next day because of all the smoke. Then, on to Reno where it looked like the beginning of a nice day from our hotel window.
