Dustin was supposed to start work this past Monday, but his trainer had to do jury duty so they bumped his start date back a week. So we got to spend one more week together work-free. Which means we needed to do something and so we went to Yosemite! We both haven't been since we were kids so we decided it would be a good place to go. So, we packed up our new tent from my parents, grabbed some food and started to drive.
These next pictures are just from the drive up as you enter into Yosemite and Yosemite Valley. This place is insanely beautiful.
|El Capitan - people rock climb this thing|
We got there Thursday evening with enough time to set up our tent and make some foil dinners.
Friday morning we headed to Bridalveil Falls. You can practically walk up to the waterfall. As soon as you start on the trail you can feel the water from the fall and the closer you get the more wet you become!
We then headed to go climb up to Yosemite Fall. This bad boy...
The scenery throughout the hike was incredible.
We made it!
After the hike, we headed to the famous Ahwahnee Hotel. My dad said that we had to go see the massive fireplaces. They were pretty big!
We explored the outside of the hotel and took a little pit stop...
Saturday we packed up and headed home. On the way we found this awesome view of the valley...
And we stopped at the giant sequoias. Not that impressive...
Ok...I'm totally joking! They are HUGE.
Everyone should go to Yosemite! It is amazing how so many amazing things can be in one little area. It makes it so easy to see so many neat things. We didn't see very much of the park because a lot of it was still closed for the winter but we will definitely be making our way back sooner rather than later.
