UNESCO Mountains

Tatra Mountains

 

Stop #9

The High Tatras are the tallest range in the Carpathian Mountains. The range runs along the border of Poland and Slovakia. I wish I had taken more pictures of the towns that we drove through. Lots of ski resorts and unique looking buildings with high pitched roofs. Very beautiful place.  And one town we drove through was Gronkow in Poland … could that be where Gronkowski’s family is from?

Yosemite

Yosemite NP

Easily one of the most recognizable National Parks, Yosemite is a peaceful and magical place.  While we were there, snow fell overnight, blanketing the park with a fresh layer of soft powder.  We followed some tracks in the snow to a spot where a coyote was eating his kill, right in front of one of the most impressive waterfalls, Upper and Lower Yosemite Falls!  And impressive Half Dome can be spotted from so many different places…just like Ansel Adams saw when he photographed the park in the late 1920s.
