Yosemite is Celebrating President’s Day

Yosemite is Celebrating President’s Day

President’s Day is right around the corner, and Yosemite National Park is celebrating by waiving the entrance fee during the whole President’s Day weekend – that means that you can visit the park between Saturday, February 15 and Monday, February 17 and get in free.  Find out more on their website: http://www.nps.gov/yose/parknews/presidentsday2014.htm

Seeing that announcement reminded me that I had never posted the pictures that I took when I was lucky enough to fly over the park, late in 2013.  I had a window seat and the flight attendant announced that we were flying over Yosemite National Park and you could see it from the side of the plane that I was lucky enough to be seated on!  I whipped out my iPhone and got a picture of half dome – you can see it on the top of this post! Can you find it? It was amazing to be looking down on such a famous landmark!

I had just been taking pictures before that announcement, because the mountains were so pretty in the light – I love dusk!  Here is one of the pictures that I took not long before they made the announcement of flying over Yosemite:
