We spent the day yesterday in Yosemite. It's easy to forget, sometime, how lucky we are to have such a beautiful place in our own backyard. People come from all over the world to visit Yosemite. Brian and I were married in Yosemite. Guests at our wedding included two bus loads of tourists from Japan. We have a photo of the whole group, with us, in our wedding album.

Yesterday, we up for Sarah and Anthony's wedding. After the reception, we went to the Mariposa Grove of Big Trees. While we were walking through the parking lot, I noticed a few license plates from different states and wondered how many states were represented in the park that day. Then, I thought 'that would make a great blog post.' So, I grabbed my camera and start taking pictures of license plates from different states.

These were in only two small parking lots, the Mariposa Grove lot and the Wawona General Store parking lot (each about 30-40 cars). Some states were represented more than once, but I only took one picture. Please leave a comment if your state is represented and let me know if you've ever been to Yosemite.

This one was behind a bike rack, kind of hard to get.

I only saw one of these. They were a long way from home.
I actually saw two of these. I wonder if they were together.
There were two of these too. I think they were together.
There were quite a few from Oregon. It's not to far to drive.
Illinois. Jacob would be searching the park for Hannah.
Only one Bama
Now that's a LONG drive! I hope it wasn't to hot for them.
There were a few Texas plates...can't blame them for leaving.
Two, at least from Minnesota. Going to visit there someday.
Quite a few from Arizona, maybe cooler here?
Pennsylvania? Wow!
A few from Colorado. Maybe, there aren't enough mountains there.
A lot from Washington, why? It's beautiful, but so is WA.
Two of these too.
A lot, from Nevada too. It's a nice weekend trip for them.
New York. New York!

What a fun study! We try to guess how many countries are represented by visitors by guessing accenets.
