Disney... Finally!

Monday we were all rested up, ready to enjoy a great first day at Disneyland!!!

I mean.... doesn't she look EXCITED????
Things changed, I promise!
But, for now..............

And, now on to some photos -- well a LOT of photos! I'll scatter them over the next couple days. I could not possible capture it all. Mainly because they do not let you, but also because I wanted to enjoy the moments vs photographing them. In the mean time... here is about the first hour in the park!

A Rest Stop or Two

Along the way we made several rest stops, not your average rest stops mind you... but some beautiful little stops! We slowed down to take in some elk on a small preserve. It was loaded with elk - they were huge, beautiful animals... right off the side of the road, not even bothered by our presence. It was a joy to watch them and take in their beauty.
We also stopped in some great little spots along the mountain ranges going between I-5 and the coastline. One stop was long the river. There were a couple of fly fisherman along the river, other than that is was quiet, peaceful and beautiful right at dusk! While Bryan fed Hudson Holly and I discovered several little brown frogs about the rocks - hopping out to the river. It made for a fun little break.

Trees Of Mystery

While on our trip we stopped to enjoy the long standing tourist spot 'Trees of Mystery' with Paul Bunyan and Babe the blue ox. Bryan and I both remember stopping and seeing these same two characters when we were younger.
This was a fun little spot that had a trail which led up to the Sky Trail, a lift through the forest tops. It was a bit nerve wracking for Holly and I at first, but we handled it well. It was beautiful, although a bit foggy, still breathtaking!
