Finally getting back to going through my road trip pictures. They’ve been sitting on my camera for two month now. These are from Yosemite. When I first arrived in Yosemite, I was a little turned off. There were about a billion tourists there and it just seemed like more of the same mountains, rocks, and trees that I’ve seen a lot of as of late. I had left early that morning from San Francisco, and I was in a mad rush to get to the first come first served campground that I wanted to stay in.

There was road construction that slowed me down a bunch, but luckily I got one of the last spots that was left. I then rushed back down to the valley back through the road construction to start actually seeing things in the park. I explored and took in all the beauty of the amazing waterfalls, El Capitan, and near perfect sunset. I waited through the road construction for the third time (this time for almost an hour, ugh) and made it back to my campsite to enjoy a dinner of cold canned ravioli, mmmm. I woke up early the next morning since I was headed to LA that day and I wanted to get up to the glacier point, the big lookout over the valley. I could have sat at Glacier Point all day and just taken pictures. It was absolutely breathtaking. The last thing I did was hike around the giant sequoia grove which was not quite as cool as it would have been since I had just seen all the giant redwoods a few days before, but it was still pretty awesome.

I realized as I was leaving the park that this short 2 day visit was only long enough to see everything that I wanted to do in Yosemite. I need to go back and ride my bike around, climb half dome, raft down the river, and a lot more.

Here are a couple of the pictures I took in the short time I was there.
