    Thank heavens we were there in an off season. Cannot imagine what it would be like during the summer!
    We had a campsite at the back, backing onto a little stream. A neighbour with a big motorhome, had a TV set outside for the children to watch movies and ran his generator all night. Lots of Spring Break partying but...we sucked it up knowing that we were in a great location for visiting this amazing park.

    I know it's a national park campground and so its bare bones. But seriously this campground wins the bare bones award.
    No hand soap in the bathrooms, no hand dryers, no hand sanitizer... nothing.

    We paid $14 to basically park the camper and flush the toilet twice. (once each)

    It was not well signposted and you have to "register" elsewhere of site. Making it fun and complicated late at night when it's really dark and cold.

    Heute morgen standen wir wieder zeitig um 7 Uhr auf, um die Fahrt zum Yosemite National Park anzutreten. In Fresno versorgten wir uns erst einmal für die nächsten Tage mit
    Lebensmitteln. Von da aus ging es direkt über die Südeinfahrt zum Yosemite National Park. Nachdem wir den Tunnel durchquert hatten (puh, wir haben gerade so durch gepasst), …

    So, heute machten wir uns nach dem Frühstück zunächst auf den Weg zum Visitor Center im Yosemite Village. Nachdem wir einige Informationen eingeholt hatten, spazierten wir zu den Lower Yoemite Falls. Von dort aus konnte man nicht nur den Lower, sondern auch den Upper Fall bewundern. Anschließend wanderten Lars, Tilo und Lena den Trail zu den Upper< …

    The Most Beautiful Place Ever - Yosemite

    Four nights and days in the most beautiful place I think I've ever seen - Yosemite National Park. There are so many words I could use to describe this place; gorgeous, pretty, spectacular, awe-inspiring but none of them actually feel like I'm doing the park justice. It was really an experience that I feel privileged to have had. I could never rave …

    What to do - this leg of the trip was always up in the air as we knew that we probably couldn't get to Yosemite via Mammoth due to the winter road closures and Yosemite was very high on our list of must dos! So we decided to go to San Francisco and then zig zag into and out of Yosemite and back to Monterey Bay.
