A few pictures from California

these handy little signs were all over the park, too bad "ugly" tourists don't follow them.
We saw these signs on different trees, and they weren't always the same symbols. The first explanation we heard was that the pine cone ones were to warn people about falling pine cones. A funny answer but one based on no knowledge! If you don't know just say so. After asking a more knowledgeable ranger we learned that the signs actually are markers for cross-country skiing in the winter.

baby tree amongst giant trees





tree tops




because the first thing you think of upon seeing a giant metal cow is pomegranate juice!







Lovers Lane? Really, I thought that was a hush hush thing.

this RV show was in the parking lot by our hotel. They apparently will accept anything for a trade!
