Yosemite National Park

We planned on spending two days in Yosemite, but it sadly had to be cut to one. The day we arrived, it was beautiful. We settled in and enjoyed the beauty of the area.

Just as the sun set, we finally started to get an idea of what fun we had coming in the days ahead. As we snuggled into our unheated yurt, the girls started getting cold and we all crowded into our double bed.

At 5:30 AM, we heard rain and it didn't stop there. At breakfast, we chatted with others to find out that the temperature was supposed to drop and the constant rain would turn into snow. We were sadly unprepared for snow and heavy rain. The forecast showed that it was supposed to drop to a chilly 13 degrees. Karren and I looked at each other and realized that we would need to leave early due to our total lack of preparation. Luckily, we had a bus tour at 2 PM where a guide would show us the sites in the valley. The rain caused low visibility, but we could see some and learned a bunch about the park.

We will definitely have to go back to Yosemite during the summer months.


  1. I'm jealous, that is one park that I want to visit some day it is so beautiful and scenic.

  2. Does this mean you are coming to Utah sooner?!
