I have lived in the SF Bay Area for over 35 years, although I grew up on Oahu and had family there until just recently. We visit Yosemite frequently as we consider Yosemite and Hawaii our 2 favorite places on earth. I am married with two kids who have spent a week every summer of their lives in the Yosemite area.
