Sure hope you're able to make it over here to see Yosimite someday.
Thank you so much OG, I love it, that was so sweet. I remember the discussion earlier in the thread about John Muir and his work to create the national parks. Thank God he did.
Oh, how I would love to visit Yosemite, Yellowstone, Kings Canyon, Redwood, Saguaro, Grand Teton and Sequoia and many, many more. I believe there are now over 50 national parks?
