Recently I was able to visit Yosemite National Park, located in California. As luck would have it, It was only one day after my visit of it that Government shutdown forced the park to close. I must say, I had more than a good time as a result of going there. The views were spectacular. While I didn't do as much hiking as I wanted to, It was still surreal. I also stayed in a rented cabin about ten miles out of Yosemite that was more like a mansion-style townhouse than it was a cabin. Complete with hot-tub, cable-t.v, and views beautiful enough to rival Yosemite. Yeah, you could say that I had a wonderful time.
