Dear Wilma,
"Russ & Annette have gone home. I'll fly back to Cleveland Oct 4th and Russ will take me home. The desert is so pretty. Going to a Mall today. Hope all are ok. More later." Marilyn

The hotel was torn down recently, but as far as I know, the sign still stands at the vacant lot.

This famous tree is in the Mariposa Grove of Big Trees, a pleasant drive of 36 miles from the hotels and camps in Yosemite Valley. The "Wawona" tree is 227 feet tall, and 90 feet in circumference. In this grove more than six hundred giant Sequoias have been growing here for centuries... the Earth's largest and oldest trees.

"Drove through this tree today. It's just beautiful up here. We're enjoying our vacation so far. How's our little bambino doing? Give her a big fat kiss for me." Joe, Marge + kids.
