I was greeted by Joe and once I told him my name he remembered I was the cyclist that talked to his wife. He is very accomodating and friendly, told us about the ice, and morning bagels, fruits etc. Clean, and very comfortable for the 3 of us, we liked that it had a seperate bedroom....and was very cozy.

Addendum: The restaurant where we ate is called Sweet Basilico, and I can recommend it highly. I had a chicken, artichoke, ...
... I have a PowerBar in my pack that one might want to eat. I push the thoughts of marauding bears, trees, and zombies out of my mind. I’m going to be daring and continue hiking alone into the wilderness. I turn my back to Julie and “feather” my way across the top of the snow pile toward Big Meadow.
Shortly, I come to the turnoff for Big Meadow and I cannot even see that trail through the snow. It’s apparently not used much. I follow what looks like a path ...
... was on the east side of the park and we had to drive through the park to get there. The sun was going down as we entered the park and we excitedly saw two female moose cross the road in front of us (we were going slow at that point). We also saw an adorable little baby something…it bounced like an antelope, but there are no antelopes in the park. We’ll have to research that one.
It was a long, slow drive with a lot of hairpin ...
