What’s the best trip you and your spouse/significant other/family have been on? Why?
I’ll get us started …
Steve and I seem to always be embarking on some adventure. Not only do we love traveling and exploring new places together, but our families are spread out all across the United States, so we are always on the road trying to visit with them. So, we have a lot of wonderful trips to choose from.
For me, it’s just too impossible to choose my absolute favorite, so I will just pick one of my many favorites to share with you today. It’s fresh on my mind because we just back from this one, but our adventure to Yosemite National Park definitely made it into our top 5 trips. If you’ve ever been, then you know why, but if you haven’t, it’s one of the most breathtakingly gorgeous places ever! Everywhere you look is a total feast for the eyes. Honestly, there were times I just thought my sense couldn’t contain the beauty.
On our trip we camped out in the valley, and it was a blast. We took our bikes around everywhere, enjoyed campfires complete with S’mores, did an epic hike up the side of Vernal Falls, watched climbers on El Capitan, relished in the views of Glacier Point, and made sure to see all of Yosemite’s water falls. We just made the most of every second there, soaking in one of God’s greatest masterpieces. It was definitely a trip that will stick with me for the rest of my life, mainly because it was all with the love of my life by my side.
Okay, it’s your turn!
