Mike and I have learned a ton about traveling with a baby and every day we talk about what we could put into a book or on a new website. We thought we might call it "The Dirtbag Baby" or something like that. It would be all about how to keep your baby and your self happy while roadtripping and trying to climb, bike, run, etc. This has definitely been the best summer roadtrip of our relationship thus far.
Here are some photos and a little info. More to follow....
My parents came for a week and we taught them all about how to scam the system in the Valley (there is a 7 day camping limit and you have to be creative to stay longer). Now my dad thinks he's a felon and has thought of all kinds of new ways to break the law since he's already done so.
Mike took Dad climbing a couple times. Here Dad is on Cathedral Peak, a 6 pitch 5.6. Dad was so proud of himself! They had a great time.
S and I atop Pothole Dome, aka FlipFlop Dome. Tuolomne Meadows is a world away from Yosemite Valley. There are many fewer people, the air is cool and crisp, there are no Nazi park rangers, the camping is easy and you don't have to be in line at 5am to get a site. We love it. Why go to the Valley? 3500 foot tall granite walls.
