Nights 261 and 262

Hi and welcome back!

Today we made reservations at campsites in Santa Nella and Saratoga Springs in California.  Because we're flying into San Jose late on Monday (and leaving early on Saturday), we tried to stay close to the airport.  We'll drive to Yosemite on Tuesday, climb on Wednesday, explore the park on Thursday, and spend some time in San Francisco on Friday before we fly home.

We started packing all of our stuff today.  Because we were getting our clothing together, we looked at the weather for next week.  For some reason we thought the temperatures would be pretty warm, 80s during the day and 40s at night.  It's actually colder than that--50s and 60s during the day and low 20s at night.  I think it's because we will be pretty high up (the valley is about 4,000 feet).

Even though it's just late September, that means we'll have to pack down jackets and other warm gear.  I'm really excited!
