Brooke and Danielle said they could have stayed there all day, just looking, taking it all in, overwhelmed by the vastness, the beauty of God's creation!!
This was one of my favorite pictures of the prairie squirrel taking it all in.
And here is Brooke at the top of the world!!
It was fun to watch Sam turn around time after time as if he was trying to memorize the view.
When I was first planning this trip Brooke and Danielle said they wanted to do some serious hiking because Uncle Dave would be with. So I talked it over with Dave and he thought they would really enjoy a hike he had done in the past to Half Dome and then you climb to get to the top. As we got closer we realized you needed a hike permit and we ran out of time. Good thing...because both of the girls got major headaches and didn't feel all that well when we just drove to the higher elevations. I pointed out to them Half Dome which is pictured below.
And here was their reaction....
They were like...are you kidding Uncle Dave???? We would have died.
I really love this picture of Danielle and Sam.
Here are a few more from this vantage point.
These little guys kept Sam entertained the whole time!
Someone was nice enough to offer to take a group photo for us.
After a while we said our final goodbyes to this amazing view and we headed back to the truck.
As we drove back through the park we found many places to stop to snap a quick picture.
As were leaving the park we came across this lone wolf.
And being the Mom I am reminded everyone to please keep your arms and legs in the vehicle at all times.
So much beauty and so little time to take it all in.
