Trials and Tribulations

How could something so simple as THIS tiny little (really tight) curve going up a hill into the majestic Yosemite National Park...

Turn into something as ugly as THIS

C'mon people, if you're from Holland, and you're renting a motorhome and driving on narrow, windy roads - PLEASE stay on your side of the double yellow line! It's all I ask!

As if losing our 5 year old while on vacation (for what seemed like HOURS) you would think we'd been given just about enough stress to hold us over until next century. But noooooo... we just weren't done living the adventurous life we've been given! Here's what his rig looked like.

Are we having fun yet???

Well... it was only a half hour later that we came through a mountain tunnel and were welcomed by this view that literally took. my. breath. away. I sucked air in so fast that it gave me the hiccups for 20 minutes. Absolutely amazing.
To tell you the truth, I'm a little worried to get out of bed tomorrow. What next??

Holy cow! Sorry to see the demise of your mirror and other damage...that can undoubtedly rob you of your joy.

That view is positively stunning! No wonder it took your breath away!

Looking forward to reading more...

Ok, I see that I need to continue to keep you guys in my prayers. Blasted Hollanders! They must go back from whence they came!

I hope you all are having a better day of it careful!

Love ya,

Good heavens, Griswald family! Forget the vacation before somebody gets hurt! LOL

Me again...
that last picture looks like that scene out of "Cars" when Lightin' McQueen drives through all those tunnels and comes out the other side going "wow!"
O.K., stop laughing. I do have a life.

Did they speak English ? ;)

We had a truck take out our side view mirror by crossing the center line once. That was terrifying! Also, the replacement mirror for our 'burban was $299. Ouch.

I am so glad you are okay.
