    My sister, her friend, my brother and myself all planned a trip to Rainbow Pools. For folks not familiar with RP, its pretty much a big pond with a waterfall, big rocks and yeah, that's it, haha. But you jump off the rocks into the water and what not, and just have a great time. Being the chicken I am, I didnt jump, so I took photos. We left our doritos on our ice chest and went across the pond, and the next time we knew we had half a dozen squirrels digging through our bag of chips! So instead of scaring them off I took pics! haha. Then from out of no where, my sister's buddy decided to drive on to Yosemite National Park! I love Yosemite, and have only been one other time. So we had an awesome Saturday!

    *It was real tough picking through these pics guys! lol.*
