Yosemite: No Crowds, No Problem
Here's a story that offers a nice retort to those who rant about declining visitation in national parks.
Sometimes, just sometimes, not having to deal with crowds and parking hassles is pretty nice. Just ask Ray and Darlene Palmer, who recently made their first trip to Yosemite.
"On the road, it was very dark and lonely, so every time we saw another car, I thought, 'Oh good, we're not the only ones out here,'" Darlene told the Modesto Bee. "But, now that we're here, we kind of like it lonely. It's lonely and lovely and serene."
