Yosemite (California Master Trip)


Reached Oakland from SFO and met up with the C'kars at the RV office.
We loaded our stuff on the RV, stocked up on food from the local Wal-Mart and set off. It was around one in the afternoon. The rest of the day was spent in driving to our campground in Wawona. It was dark by the time we reached our campground and we just had time to finish dinner and call it a day!


Campsite to Bridal Veil falls
Horse Tail falls
5 mile hike around Mirror Lake
Pizza lunch
Enjoyed a nice dinner by the riverside


Set off after breakfast
Bus to Mariposa grove
Long walk to the end look out point and walked back to wawona village where our RV was parked. 13 miles! Lunch was canned tuna salad, boiled egg, bread and cheese.
Bonfire in our campsite, played a round of bluff to please the kids and enjoyed nice Indian dinner!


Set off after breakfast and drove to the start point of Cathedral Lake near the Tuolomne meadows.
Found lot of snow on the walking trail and in places knee deep. Lost our way for a brief period.
Had to abandon the hike after completing 3/4th of the distance because of cold feet and general tiredness of the young hikers in the group.
5.5 miles in the snow and great views made it our favorite hike in Yosemite!
Drove back and parked in a place next to beautiful pool and enjoyed maggie for lunch.
Once back in the campground for the night we enjoyed another bonfire and a nice Indian dinner.

It was our last day at the unbelievably beautiful Yosemite and we were looking forward to the next leg of our journey, a beach holiday!
