[livejournal.com profile] sartorias and I drove up to Mariposa last week, to stay at my parents' house and write. We all went to Yosemite, and had a picnic by a river. It was gorgeous. Photos behind cut.

Dad and Sherwood admire the waterfall.

We stopped at a look-out point...

...looked back at the road...

...and at the side of the road.

At a river.

Here Dad and I discussed trout fishing.

Perhaps someday we will pull trout out of those waters, roll them in cornmeal, and fry them in bacon fat. I have wanted to do that the entire life - the legacy of many hours spent reading "Little House" books.

And then there were waterfalls.

Sooooo beautiful! I imagine you must have been inspired to write LOTS in an environment like that!

Loooove the pictures.

Also, I also spent far too long reading the "Little House" books. Have you heard of "The Wilder Life: My Adventures in the Lost World of Little House on the Prairie" by Wendy McClure? I recommend it! It's a memoir about a woman who goes out to find as much about the real history behind the books as possible- she visits the sites the houses were on, and tries to churn her own butter, and so forth.
