Steve and I decided to leave Tahoe early and go camping at Yosemite National Park for a few days. Actually, Steve decided to go to Yosemite since he knew I was disappointed that we couldn't stop there on the drive to Tahoe. Other than his bike ride in Tahoe, this vacation is relatively unstructured and we can go on side trips if we feel like it. Luckily, it's a bit before the main tourist season. We haven't had much trouble finding accomodations - in fact, we got a heated tent cabin inside Yosemite at Camp Curry.
I'd never been to Yosemite before; it's possible I've never been at a National Park either. If I had to describe Yosemite in one sentence it would be "Honey, stop the car because I need to take a picture of that." It's just so beautiful. I took tons of photos which all fail to capture how amazing Yosemite is.
We spent most of our time in the less inhabited places in the park - Merced Grove and the Tioga Pass meadows areas. There's still some snow left at the higher elevations and that area doesn't have tons of visitors in the spring. It does have lots of deers and bears. It was lovely, peaceful and so amazing. The waterfalls are absolutely amazing now as all of the snow melts and feeds into the falls.
We're off to camp in Eldorado National Forest for a few day - possibly more pics and posts later, but probably not.
