My mother, Carolynn lives in Medford - semi independent in a cottage at the Manor. She is interested in new things, new friends and places to travel while cherishing her old friends and rembrances of family and times. She turned 90 on September 1. Last year just after her 89th birthday, i asked her what she would like to do for her 90th.....to my surprise, but not surprised, she said that she would like to return to a favorite hike in the Yosemite high country. We succeeded in getting selected in the lottery system required to enter the high country and on July 5 a group of children and grandchildren escorted her to May Lake at 9,000 feet elevation in the Yosemite high country. She made the trek over granite stones in great shape and enjoyed the night in tent cabins and camp dining to its fullest. She continues to look for adventure, began a golf club for the very first time and hopes to be a mentor for another high school girl this year. She celebrates every day as a new adventure. I am exceedingly proud of her!
