    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.

    Zuerst wollten wir heute über die Tioga Road zum Mono Lake und wieder zurück. Etwa 150 Meilen und fast 30 Grad haben uns dann davon abgehalten. Man muss auch später noch was zum anschauen haben....
    Stattdessen gings mit dem Womo auf eine kleine Rundreise zur Tunnel View und zum Bridalveil Fall. Bei der Tunnel View hatten wir eine fantastisch …

    Das Valley auf einem Velo zu erkundigen muss sicher schön sein. So mieteten wir im Curry Village Velos und ein Trailer.
    Die Route führte uns zum Yosemite Village und dann weiter zu den Yosemite Falls. Von dort zur nächste Brücke wo die Kids die Füsse ins Wasser hielten (und Andrin etwas mehr... dank Raphael...). Dort machten wir ein kleines …

    Memorialday und jede Menge Leute.... trotzdem hatten wir nie das Gefühl, dass das Valley "überlastet" war. Wir machten eine kleine Rundwanderung über das Housekeeping Camp (Wäsche muss auch in den Ferien gemacht werden) zum Yosemite Valley und zurück zum Campground. Wir nahmen es gemütlich und waren daher fast den ganzen Tag unterwegs. Am Abend …

    Das berühmt berüchtigte Memorialday Weekend hat begonnen. Wir hatten eine längere Fahrt vor uns und waren gespannt wie gut diese verläuft. Wir entschieden uns für den schnellsten Weg über Fresno nach Oakhurst und dann zum Südeingang des Yosemite NP. Die 100 Meilen bis nach Oakhurst schafften wir in gut 2 Stunden. Vor Oakhurst gab es einen Stau und …
