On our trip to Mesa this year Joy an I decided to go the westcoast route instead of through Utah that way we could stop off at Yosemite National Park. Months ago, we watched a show on the founding of the National Parks and it highlighted John Muir‘s quest to protect Yosemite and the great Sequoias.
We stayed at the Cedar Lodge, just outside the park, which made for a short morning drive to the park entrance. Almost instantly I was amazed by the towering granite cliffs and breathtaking sites.
Joy and I walked, drove, and just looked at the sites Yosemite had to offer. My favorite picture is this one with El Capitan in the background and reflections in the cold winter water – probably the best picture I’ve ever took using a GoPro 3 Black and the app. Other pictures I like are of us from the lookout with El Capitan and Half Dome in the background and Bridalveil Falls.
I wish we could have stayed longer and did some hikes’ maybe on our next visit.
The one bad point of Yosemite is: People drive way to dam fast through the park. Honestly, slow the hell down folks and enjoy your visit.
