A Weekend in Yosemite

For one of our wedding gifts, we received a weekend get-away in Yosemite at the Awahanee Lodge. When we opened our gifts back in October, seven months seemed so far away. But, as always, time flew by and now we're already back from our trip. Our room had a wonderful view and we were able to enjoy a 5-course dinner in the Lodge's dining room.

The weather and scenery could not have been more beautiful. The falls were absolutely stunning. And, due to a rock-slide at the southwest entrance, there were less tourists than we expected. On Saturday, we took a bike ride and on Sunday, a nature walk up to the bottom of Yosemite Falls (brrr!). And, of course, I took a ton of pictures with my new camera!

There is something amazing about Yosemite. The sheer granite cliffs, the majestic waterfalls and the rushing rivers are reminders of how powerful and beautiful God is. Truly, there is nothing that man has ever created that can even come close to the stunning beauty of nature. The best we can do (and we do quite well because He made us to be creative beings) is to imitate God's creation. But God created from nothing. . . nothing but His own imagination. He is so amazing!
