golden beaver fever...

phase one (the mother-daughter portion) of the golden beaver fever road trip is now complete. we flew into sacramento, california and drove south along the sierra nevada mountains. here's the highlight reel from the week:
  • visited the jelly belly factory
  • ate at in-n-out
  • took a barefoot stroll through sequoia national park and visited the general sherman tree
  • ate dinner at a fancy restaurant overlooking the kaweah river
  • climbed on the rocks in the kaweah river
  • drove across yosemite national park...and saw a bear
  • rolled our eyes every time garmina recalculated
  • overlooked yosemite valley (el capitan, half dome, bridalveil fall)
  • hiked (and i do mean hiked) to the devil's postpile national monument and rainbow falls at mammoth mountain
  • sat in the hot tub
  • went on a bike ride around the base of mammoth mountain (my mom opted out of that one)
  • breathed a lot of fresh, thin mountain air
  • took a scenic drive around june lake, mono lake and mammoth lakes
  • lunched on the south shore of lake tahoe
anyone want to take a guess about the meaning behind the name 'golden beaver fever'? first person to correctly answer may win a prize! (sorry missy, you're not eligible)
