Yosemite: Hit the Road, Jack!

Back in the day, just a few years ago, we threw our tent into the car trunk with assorted gear, dug out my Eagle Pass, and drove south. 

Once at the North Pines site, we set up that tent for a week in Yosemite Valley, mid-summer. I remember those lovely days of hiking, cooking dinner with our Coleman stove, and then sitting on our foldable camp chairs, watching the stars come out and listening to the coyotes call. These pictures bring back a few memories of those hikes. 

I know many people don't like to camp out. I suppose I'd never convince them to give it a try -- but those of you who have slept out on the ground know why I'm reviewing my camping gear (and skills) and thinking about the coming summer trip as December closes in! 

Maybe you'll remember that great song, "Hit the Road, Jack, and don't you come back no more, no more, no more, no more!"  I'm ready to hit the road.

I loved camping out and miss it. In other words, I understand, Beth. Here's to having that equipment ready to go when you are as well. Lovely photos!

P.S. "Hit the Road, Jack" plays every time I look at this post *smiling and remembering*
