Dear Diary, we loved Yosemite Valley! We saw up close and personal some of Yosemite's most famous sightseeing points such as Yosemite Falls, Half Dome, El Capitan, Tunnel View and Bridalveil Falls. Our park ranger described in detail the history, geology, plant and animal life of the region.
We enjoyed our week in Yosemite with Ginny and Gene. We stayed 4 nights at the Tenaya Lodge. We hiked through the Mariposa grove of giant sequoias ending at the breathtaking grizzly giant. On our way home from Yosemite we stopped in Bass Lake for a day of fishing. Jeff chartered a boat to take us out to catch some trout. And catch trout we did! We came home with 5 fish and cooked them for dinner the next night! Good times!

Blueberry Lemon Drop
1 oz lemon juice
2 oz blueberry (Stolichnaya) vodka
3 tsp syrup
Pour lemon juice and blueberries into the cocktail shaker first. Muddle the blueberries a bit (this will release the juices and give the martini that pretty pink/purple color). Add vodka, syrup, and ice. Shake for 20 seconds and pour into a chilled martini glass!
