Big Ag and I took advantage of the slow season to head up to the mountains for a few days of rest and relaxation. We stayed at a lodge close to Yosemite National Park, thinking we'd go down to the valley floor and see the sights for a day or so. But Mother Nature had other plans and we were rained out. Which meant we were forced to spend the two days at the lodge huddled up by the giant fireside reading books, in the basement playing pool, sitting in the hot tub, eating great food and then working it off at the gym while the rain poured down outside.
I know. First World Problems, right?

All in all it was not a bad way to spend a vacation. We've been to Yosemite many times already, and unless the ancient rock formations have changed, I'm thinking we probably didn't miss much down in the park. But sitting around at the lodge was a lovely way to kick off the holiday season, and although we love where we live, the brief change of scenery from provencal-style vineyards to Alpine pine forest was great.
