Visited Yosemite National Park, California

Tuesday, February 2, 2021

Our first trip to Yosemite National Park was this last Labor Day weekend. Yosemite National Park is a place of incredible natural beauty that really should be experienced in person. There is so much to do and appreciate at Yosemite. Since we have a baby and can't take that hike so  we went head to the lookout at Tunnel View. The views include Half Dome, Glacier Point, Sentinel Dome, and the El Capitan.  

Yosemite has a day-pass reservation system during our visit because of COVID. The reservations are required in an effort to control the crowds and slow the spread of COVID-19. Is it a hassle? Yes, it is. However, we were fortunate enough to score a reservation last September 2020.  We never experienced crowds this low in the valley. So you have to take the good with the bad. Masks are enforced. I can understand if someone takes off their mask to hike but the public areas and shops are half full and customers practice social distancing.

Yosemite National Park is known for its beautiful scenery, gorgeous waterfalls, giant sequoias, and granite mountains & cliffs.

Visited Seven Magic Mountain in Las Vegas

Friday, January 22, 2021

We've made several trips to Vegas but this is our first time stopping by to see the seven magic mountains with our son. The photos you see in instagram, does not justify in person. These sculptures are beautiful, colorful and amazing. We came here late afternoon and it has small crowds. Lots of parking during that time too. To be honest, this is the most beautiful thing I've ever seen during the pandemic 2020. You got to check it out and get your photos.

Seven Magic Mountains  is about 10 miles south of The Strip, on Las Vegas Blvd, and parallel to Interstate 15.  According to the website, this installation will remain until the end of 2021. We didn't spend much time there but we took enough time to enjoy this art installation while it's still standing. Worth stopping by for a photo opportunity if you are in Vegas.
