Yosemite Photo Album

I just returned from a week in Yosemite. My family and I camped in a tent, hiked the waterfalls, splashed in the ice-cold rivers and lakes of Yosemite. We partied with several other families, shared meals and had a great time. But, reality and home life is now upon us. And I have lots of laundry and unpacking to do! So until I am able to get more recipes up, enjoy my little photo album of Yosemite National Park. Nestled in California, it really is an international oasis. People of all ages and from all over the world explore Yosemite. You can hear all the many languages spoken as you hike, swim and bike the park. You can go rustic in a tent, with camping spots for as little as $20/night, or you can go all-out in luxury and stay at the Awhwahnee Hotel for over $400/night. And there are so many other lodging options in between. This is our second trip to Yosemite, and we will definitely be back again!

    Beautiful photos….simply stunning!

  3. Absolutely love your photos. The granite heart at the end is very cool! My parents purchased a cabin in Wawona in 1969 so I've been a regular in Yosemite for many years. Even lived in our "Mini Cabin" one summer when we were in between houses. Wawona is awesome because you can do everything right from the cabin's doorstep. Even hike waterfalls and swim. Just thinking about it brings so many memories. Here's our humble spot (available for rent too) wink, wink, smile. http://www.vrbo.com/362318

  4. We stopped in Wawona when we left Yosemite. Beautiful little town! They had a little Old West town set up and we visited with a black smith who made us a hook and took a carriage ride. Kids loved it. I'll try to post those pictures soon. Cute little cabin! I'll tell my friends!

  5. You found the Pioneer History Center! They still host barn dances once a week. They had a fiddler and a person who called out the steps and everything. I became friends with the woman who "lived" in the settler home and made cookies for the visitors. Our cabin is about a 3/4 mile hike down the road. You can lay in bed and listen to the river.

    My mom was just in Yosemite and sent me a bag of bear clover. It's on desk. Aaaaah…

  6. Awww… my favorite place! I came to the US to study about nature because I fell in love with Yosemite when I visited during summer in high school. It was a huge impact on me! I live maybe 5 hours away, but haven't visited since my kids were born. Thanks for sharing your pictures!

    What a stunning photo tour. We went to Yosemite years ago for a week long hike. I would love to go there with my kids and show them. I love photo tours.
