Hello Internet World! I am back!

He’s not yet … More 7.6.20 May & June in Review!

It’s no secret that I love Joshua Tree National Park. It’s the first California NP that I ever stepped foot in (and the whole reason why I started falling in love with our National Parks in the first place) but it’s also the first NP that I took my brother to. It’s close enough to … More 02.10.20 Photos from Joshua Tree NP
Jim and I closed out our trip in Yosemite like we do on all of our National Park trips … with a surprising last hike that turned out to be our favorite!

Just dropping in a handful of photos here from my brother’s first time seeing the famous El Capitan (“El Cap” for short) in Yosemite National Park.

It’s time for another Dewey the Dewdrop update!
