The last few weeks have been a whirlwind of adventures with no slowing down! I had a great time visiting Yosemite National Park for some hiking with my father. We are preparing for a big climb in September! That means using my days off to hike as much as possible, and taking lots of outdoorsy photos.
Yosemite is an inspiring place to visit. The views of the mountains are breathtaking. We weren’t super lucky with the weather -it even snowed as we were leaving the park – but that didn’t slow us down too much. Some of the longest hikes we did were up to the top of Yosemite’s Upper Falls (the tallest waterfall in North America) and up to Vernal and Nevada Falls. The trails are rugged and tough, so for the most part you need good hiking boots, snacks, and at this time of year a rain jacket.
We stayed in Curry Village, where the tent cabins are pretty cozy. It feels like camping, but with many more conveniences. There is a shower house, a wifi lounge, a pizza patio bar, and a shuttle bus that tours the park. I would recommend it if you want to do some camping, but your fellow travelers aren’t so into making a fire and sleeping on the ground.
I’ve decided to break up the photos from this trip into a few posts, so check back for more to come over the next few days 🙂
