April trip to Yosemite

We went back to Yosemite during spring break and had a wonderful time. We had cool weather and graupel the first few days then the temperature shot up to mid 70's. I finally downloaded the photos, so here are a few...

Tunnel View
Yosemite Falls

Half Dome

Our Maile girl

Our site - 50 - Lower Pines (the post says 49, but that's the site across the road)

We have space on both sides of the trailer, but luckily we have the back door that faces the site.

We love our trips to Yosemite! We're lucky we live so close!

Glenn, we only go in the spring or fall now. Totally different vibe. No more summer trips! The only thing I miss about our summer trips are the programs they offer. They're really streamlined in the spring and fall.

Yeah, know what you mean as to being off peak times. We went to Yellowstone a couple of years ago in the first week of October and literally almost had the entire park to ourselves.
Coooooooooooooold though, but sure did make steam from all the features.....

I took the family last summer, the only time I could get off a deal of time. It was great, hot yeah, crowded, yeah, but still a wonder. Stayed at a little RV place just outside and drove in everyday. Loved it. One thing, do all the foreigners smoke cigarettes? Sorry wrong forum.

Jlew127.....in answer to your question yup ....more Canadians were smokers ó 19%, compared with about 17% of Americans however Canadians are healthier

Coops

Study: Canadians healthier than Americans
Posted 5/30/2006 7:37 PM ET E-mail | Print |
ATLANTA (AP) ó You can add Canadians to the list of foreigners who are healthier than Americans. Americans are 42% more likely than Canadians to have diabetes, 32% more likely to have high blood pressure, and 12% more likely to have arthritis, Harvard Medical School researchers found. That is according to a survey in which American and Canadian adults were asked over the telephone about their health.
The study comes less than a month after other researchers reported that middle-aged, white Americans are much sicker than their counterparts in England.

"We're really falling behind other nations," said Dr. Steffie Woolhandler, a co-author of the Canadian study.

Canada's national health insurance program is at least part of the reason for the differences found in the study, Woolhandler said. Universal coverage makes it easier for more Canadians to get disease-preventing health services, she said.

James Smith, a RAND Corp. researcher who co-authored the American-English study, disagreed. His research found that England's national health insurance program did not explain the difference in disease rates, because even Americans with insurance were in worse health.

"To me, that's unlikely," he said of the idea that universal coverage explains international differences.

Woolhandler said her findings were different in at least one important respect: In the Canadian study, insured Americans and Canadians had about the same rates of disease. It was the uninsured Americans who made the overall U.S. figures worse, she said.

The study, released Tuesday, is being published in the American Journal of Public Health. It is based on a telephone survey of about 3,500 Canadians and 5,200 U.S. residents in 2002-03. Those surveyed were 18 or older.

The results are based on what those surveyed said about their health. In contrast, the researchers in the American-English study surveyed participants and also examined people and conducted laboratory tests on them.

The new study found that 6.7% of Americans and 4.7% of Canadians reported having diabetes; 18.3% and 13.9%, respectively, reported having high blood pressure; and 17.9% and 16.0% said they had arthritis. The Americans also reported more heart disease and major depression, but those difference were too small to be statistically significant.

About 21% of Americans said they were obese, compared with 15% of Canadians. And about 13.5% of the Americans admitted to a sedentary lifestyle, vs. 6.5% of Canadians. However, more Canadians were smokers ó 19%, compared with about 17% of Americans.

About 42% of the Americans rated their quality of health care as excellent, while 39% of Canadians did.

Also, 92% of American women said they had a Pap test within the last five years, while 83% of Canadian women had. But Canadians have lower death rates from cervical cancer. "It's a little hard to interpret," Woolhandler said.

One more plus for the Americans: Fewer than 1% said they were unable to get needed care because of long waits, compared with 3.5% of Canadians.

However, about 80% of Americans had a regular doctor, while 85% of Canadians did. And nearly twice as many Americans said there were medicines they needed but couldn't afford (9.9% vs. 5.1%).
