Words cannot describe Yosemite. Instead, this post will be filled with photos.
Things of note:
We stayed at North Pines Campground. Spots are wooded, no hookups, picnic tables and fire rings are provided. There are public restrooms, no showers, and bear proof food storage lockers.
We hiked up, and back down, to Glacier Point. We hiked to and from Vernal Falls. We watched the climbers on El Capitan with telescopes. We rented bicycles to see the park and hiked up to Mirror Lake. We scooted to the Tuolumne Grove of giant sequoias and walked around exploring. We watched two evening shows starring Lee Stetson as John Muir. We did the Valley Floor tour by bus. We had lunch at the Majestic Hotel (formerly known as the Ahwahnee) and had dinner in Half Dome Village (formerly Curry Village). We saw coyote and deer. The kids became junior rangers and we had many nights of fires and s’mores!
It is by far one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen in my entire life.
