on a recent trip to yosemite, the robins proved to be the perfect transitional sandal... taking us from summer to autumn; the beach to the mountains.

with their wide criss-cross strap, they were comfy enough to double as slippers over a hot mug of coffee in the morning and take us to a late summer bbq on the lawn of the historic wawona hotel at dusk.

in between sandal-friendly activities, we put our hiking boots to use on a short two mile round-trip trek to Artist Point for uncrowded views of Yosemite's infamous "Tunnel View" panorama.

Ansel Adams summed it up perfectly when he said “Yosemite Valley, to me, is always a sunrise, a glitter of green and golden wonder in a vast edifice of stone and space.” We couldn't agree more!
