Yosemite Westgate Lodge

... the line for me to use. After nearly barfing from the exposure on the descent, I wasn’t sure how I’d do going across but only hanging from a rope and in an awkward position nonetheless. But I had to get across, so I attached the jumars, clipped in and pushed myself away from the safety of the Lost Arrow Spire.

... and it was the most special vacation I'd ever taken in my life. So this was like a 10-year anniversary.
And fifth, as the title of this entry says...there is no place on earth like Yosemite. And we haven't even explored the high country yet! And I do mean yet.
One night in the valley we were treated to a film written and starred in by Park Ranger Shelton Johnson, called Buffalo Soldier. It was about the history of the Buffalo Soldiers and, specifically, ...
... Temperatures not quite the same here as in Vegas but the snow just added to the effect.
One word for Yosemite Park - unbelievable!!! The shear size has to be seen to be believed! It has 1600 miles of streams, 800 miles of hiking trails and 350 miles of roads!!! Needless to say we saw a little bit. Just didn't quite manage to see it all! ...
... with our resources. Having had the charging problem fixed earlier in the trip we had to rely on the trailer battery to get us through 3 days of roughing it. This meant limited usage of the lights to ensure we had enough power for the furnace and fridge to get through the 3 days. We used the heat sparingly as well so the fan on the furnace didn't drain the battery. With the cool evening temperatures and the sun going down early (approx. 5:00pm after ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsYosemite Westgate Lodge Groveland
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.
