Time in the Sierras

Isaac and I (Gavin) have enjoyed spending some time in California with my family as well as reconnect with people in my home church. It has been good to see everyone here. We have had some great times in the mountains as well. My cousin/best friend Grant and I got to take a backpacking trip last weekend into Yosemite while my parents watched Isaac. We had a wonderful time and the area we were in was just gorgeous.

We even took our frisbees up for a few rounds of frisbee golf.  Only an extra 175 grams each in the packs, not too bad!

I got to take Isaac on a shorter overnight pack trip with my dad and brother-in-law as well when we were up in the Huntington Lake area. It was a good time for all and we were even told about a cave that we could check out. The directions were good and we found the sinkhole entrance. It was pretty small, but beautiful with white and black marble throughout. There was one point where it was pretty tight getting through, but we made it through to tell about it!

At the beginning of the cave

The walls and floor were marble.  It looked like someone had come along and carved it out with a spoon.

The wildflowers were just beautiful!

When we were at Huntington Lake for a picnic I took a picture of Isaac among the gorgeous shooting star flowers in the same spot where I did so when he was six months old and then later when he was three and a half.  Here are the pictures from before as well.

Just last week.  His dad wasn't responsible enough to un-tousle his hair before the picture.

We had some wonderful times and wish Carrie could have come, but it's good to be back with her.
