A Week in Yosemite

We’ll, this is fairly late in coming, but I guess I should post something about our trip to Yosemite a week ago. I think I’ve been avoiding this post because it’s so hard to know what to say about such a fantastic place. Perhaps I’ll just let the photos speak for themselves, though they don’t really do justice either.

I will say that we were lucky to be there when we were–the weather was good, the crowds were relatively thin, and the waterfalls were at peak. We had a nice mix of activities–a stay in the Wawona Hotel, a visit to the giant sequoias, three nights car camping in Yosemie Valley, three days backpacking out of the Valley, one afternoon horseback riding, and a bit of time on either end in San Francisco.

Perhaps I’ll have more to say as I get further from it, but for now here are some photos to give you a taste of how we experience this incomparable place.

    That is one place I have always wanted to visit. I think your pictures are wonderful. I do, agree, though, that your pictures probably can't do the place real justice. I am glad that you seemed to have such a wonderful time. I hope you have memories that will last for years to come.

  2. Thanks for dropping by, Kortney. I hope you get a chance to visit sometime–it's one of the those place that eveyone should see at least once in their lifetime. If you go, try to avoid the summer when it's most crowded, or at least try to get out of the Valley and away from the throngs for some of your tip. My best memories are of backpacking a bit off further out.
