Day 1 - 7 Aug 2021

Oakhurst

Oakhurst, Oakhurst

Content: We checked into an AirBNB in Oakhurst, CA after a long drive from Los Angeles, CA. This AirBNB was close enough to the park that we could wake up early and get to Yosemite! Highly recommend doing a night before visit the park if you are coming from somewhere far. We checked out a local creek called the Lewis creek in Oakhurst and it’s beautiful!

Day 2 - 8 Aug 2021

Lower Yosemite Falls

Yosemite National Park, Lower Yosemite Falls

Content: This hike to reach the Lower Falls was a pretty scary one. It looks easy, but you have to climb a bunch of rocks and go I to some slightly dangerous positions to reach this waterfall pool at the bast of Lower Yosemite Falls. It was beautiful and a great work out. The water was ice cold on a hot summer day. It took me about 2 hours to reach the waterfall.

Content: This hike to Taft Point in Yosemite was about 2.2 miles round trip and it was fairly easy. There was only a slight elevation change once you reach the point. Highly recommend it for beautiful views. Good to start the hike around 11 AM or earlier to prevent it from getting too hot.
