Well we did not get up there at the crack o' dawn but we arrived in Hope Valley just a little after 8 am .... not bad for us. It was a beautiful day in the High Sierras. From Hope Valley we motored on up towards Blue Lake. Thaleia (http://www.thaleia.com/) led the way. and close behind was Dorothy and Carolyn ... with Unocchio and Carol pulling up the rear.
After painting in the meadow for a couple hours the pond called and we made our way up there.
It is so beautiful in the High Sierras ... I'd go there just to hike or picnic.
Pack up your picnic and go ... skip the restaurant ... skip the movie theater ..... go outside today and have some fun.
