Die Yosemite Westgate Lodge gehört zur Motel-Kette America's Best Value Inn, mit der wir schon unterschiedliche Erfahrungen gemacht haben - so zwischen "Okay" und "Geht eigentlich gar nicht". Die Westgate Lodge stellt sämtliche bisher von uns ausprobierten Motels in den Schatten. Eine blitzsaubere und hübsch bepflanzte Anlage, nettes Empfangspersonal, ein großes modernes Zimmer samt Kühlschrank, Flat Screen und Direct TV, schöner Pool - volle Punktzahl! Sogar die Laundry ist mit mehr Geräten ausgestattet, als wir je in einem Hotel gesehen haben.

A moment of excitement when Roger saw a rattle snake just off the path who rattled at him. This prompted a top tips round from the Californians in the group regarding how to deal with rattlesnakes. Amy's top tips:

After a lovely walk around the trees it was time to finally head back to base camp. We had a great meal in Mariposa on the way back to Davis. At dinner I discussed the merits of being in a populated area with proper showers and beds.
"Yep," Ben responded, "Gotta start acting civilised." He finished the statement with an almighty belch and a loud expletive. I don't think civilisation will ever be ready for him.
... surrounding it. This would have to be a highlight of the time we spent in Yosemite. Campfires and roasting marshmallows concluded each of our days much to Joel's pleasure. Joel did his second Junior Ranger Badge for this trip. He had to attend a Ranger Talk so chose for us all to do the one on the bears of Yosemite. This was pretty interesting and educational. Not sure if I would have been able to face down a bear and yell at it to scare it off if ...
