Postcards from California

My sister and her husband, my doggie nephew Zack and I went Into the West this past week. The music from Flower Drum Song kept running through my head.
This is Yosemite National Park's famed Half Dome from the Sentinel Bridge, shrouded by clouds. The weather kept changing. "In every single minute so much is going on." I did see it when the cloud cover parted, but I wasn't quick enough to take a photograph.
Wine-tasting at the V. Sattui Winery in Napa Valley. It is probably the most quaint and picturesque winery in the area.
San Francisco, California, U.S.A.! "Over a foggy bay..."
"The air is very clean and dry.": Tuolumne Grove in Yosemite. A treat to see snow for our Aussie tour companions.
Yosemite Falls. In the park, "every flower and tree is a treat to see."
El Capitan in the winter. The park was "a miracle of changing weather".
