Wow!  I just spent a whirlwind week with my little sister traveling around California!  It was a very unexpected trip for me.  She was going out to visit her son, but some unexpected things came up and he was unable to be there to meet her, so she asked me to go along!  Whew!  I had to book a flight, find places for us to stay and get an agenda ready in under a week!  Yikes!!

So, off we went on an adventure!  We did a quick stop over in Vegas for a night!  Lybbie had tickets to see Ron White at the Mirage, so we spent one day walking around and seeing the sights in Vegas.  While sight seeing we stopped off at the Bellagio and the Venetian.  What beautiful hotels!  We were going to go on a gondola ride, but after the show it was a bit late and both of us we're pooped out!!

A couple of our favorite stops in California were Sequoia and Yosemite National Parks.  We were afraid we might not get to go to Sequoia due to the fires, but all was good.  We saw 3 little bear cubs!!  Adorable!  Hiked from Wolverton to the General Sherman.  Absolutely a gorgeous hike!!  I would highly recommend the hike over the shuttle to anyone.  The scenery was beautiful and so peaceful and well worth the time spent hiking the 2 miles!  The General Sherman is a sight everyone should experience at least once in their lifetime!!  I've been there a couple of times and it still takes my breath away! 

Yosemite was beautiful as well!!  While driving up the mountain side there are many stops for breathtaking views!  Moro Rock can be seen from several different spots and is quite a sight.  The falls were dry, but the walk back to the lower falls was beautiful!!  Just beautiful!  It always amazes me when I go to places such as these how creative God is and how much beauty we have here on Earth!  If these places are so beautiful, I can't even imagine how beautiful heaven will be some day!!

 Our main destination was LA.  What a busy, busy city!  We drove down to Santa Monica Pier, walked along the coast, saw Rodeo Drive and spent a little time on Hollywood Blvd.  We both decided we're small town girls and the hustle and bustle of the big city are just not for us!  But, it was fun seeing all the sights!! 

 And, probably the most important thing was my new little grandson didn't arrive on the scene while I was gone!!  Yeah!!  He can come any time now! Mamaw is home!!
