Day 1 - 17 May 2019
Content: The main part of Yosemite National Park is a four-hour drive from San Francisco. We planned our weekend in Yosemite.
Day 1 - 17 May 2019
Content: Classic rooms are finely appointed with lovely views of Glacier Point, Half Dome, or Yosemite Falls, as well as the hotel surroundings.
Content: Here we found exhibits about the history and geography of Yosemite, the flora and fauna we encountered in the park, and maps to help us to get oriented.
Content: Yosemite Falls is the other picturesque and popular waterfall in the Yosemite Valley, and beautiful to behold from the Valley floor.
Content: Half Dome rises some 5,000 feet above the floor of Yosemite Valley and is one of the most ambitious “popular” hikes you can undertake.
Content: Three stars specifically for bartender Gabe, he's the reason to go here and makes whatever you want and makes it well, we had a hot toddy. Food was ok, even for bar food, chili was good, salsa was not, sliders were good, but you're paying PER slider - ie prices are too high for this place. Wait is long and host refuses to give you wait time or even seat you at the bar, we had to move ourselves from an obnoxiously large table when we knew other groups were waiting. We honestly wouldn't recommend this unless you're looking for a well made drink in the valley.
Day 2 - 18 May 2019
Content: Bridalveil Fall is by far the most popular waterfall in Yosemite National Park, taking its name from its delicate appearance as it cascades down to the valley floor. There’s a 0.5-mile trail from the parking area to give you a great view of the 620-foot waterfall.
Content: El Capitan is one of the two most well-known sights in Yosemite and it’s best viewed from various points throughout the park.
Content: Mirror Lake, as its name suggests, is a beautiful lake where you can see Mt. Watkins reflected on a clear day. We opt for the full five-mile loop around the lake.
Content: The pizza patio is a convenient place for people staying in Half Dome Village as well as visitors to enjoy great pizza in a scenic environment. The service is quick and beers are served on the patio too. Overall a must visit place when you are in Yosemite Valley!
Day 3 - 19 May 2019
Content: The food here was surprisingly good, though the options are limited. We had a roast beef sandwich on gluten free bread with avocado and it was delicious. It was crazy busy in there when we arrived and the staff were calm and friendly.Great coffee too!
Content: After having great breakfast we left Yosemite National Park and went o Cathedral Lakes. Located outside the Yosemite Valley, Cathedral Lakes are a bit off the heavily-trodden path for visitors – but stunningly beautiful if you’re willing to make the trek.
Content: Cathedral Peak rises to 10,912 feet in elevation and is a popular rock climbing destination. Located at the feet of Cathedral Peak, an eight-mile trail allows you to hike to both Upper and Lower Cathedral Lakes.
Content: Our road trip to Yosemite National Park ended. It was a wonderful weekend road trip.
