Ice Ice Baby... By Jes

Have you wondered where I've been? If you have, you're not alone.

It's been a REALLY busy couple of months 
(hence the blog silence on my part)
So in order to get some much needed rest and to recharge my customer service batteries (trust me, you do not want to encounter me in the last 2 weeks in December), we decided to get out of Dodge.

We chose a mini vacation in Yosemite.

Yosemite didn't have snow, but it was still beautiful. 
And we pretty much had it to ourselves.

Okay, we found a little snow (enough for 1 snowball launched at Danny). We drove out to Tuolumne Meadows and found a frozen lake along the way. 

We (mostly me) were a little nervous, but we ventured out onto the ice.

 We ended up seeing people ice skating out there, so we felt better.

Later that day we found a frozen waterfall.

 I've decided people who do not grow up around snow are obsessed with all things frozen. We were not the only ones. 

We spent the rest of the time hiking or reading in front of the huge fireplaces at the Ahwahnee.

I highly recommend Yosemite as a wintertime vacation. 
Beat the crowds, see some bears, eat at the Ahwahnee 
(do NOT get mochas at the Ahwahnee lounge though, YUCK)
and relax.
