Yosemite Family Trip
Warning Lots of Photos
Our family trip this year we went to California. We hit Sequoia, Yosemite and Great Basin National Parks. We went with Brenda and her family and My parents and younger siblings came to. The only one not there was Calista and her family. We hope they can make it next time. We were gone 9 days and 8 nights. We drove our van with the new natural gas which saved us a lot. I ordered the wrong roof racks so all of our gear was piled in the van, tight fit, but it worked.
Some of the best views: Glacier Point, Olmstead Point, and Hodgen Meadow
Friday we drove to LV and met up with Brenda and Bart. We went swimming and got to go to the Temple.
Saturday: We drove to Bakersfield CA, and stopped and saw Jordan's Best friend from High School. They have a beautiful new home and had just brought home their new baby boy from the hospital. We loved seeing all the farm land on the drive.
Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday we spent at Yosemite National Park. My parents joined us on Tuesday and Wednesday. We stayed in a KOA outside the park and camped one night in the park.Camping at the
KOA and Bridal Veil Falls
Hiking to Vernal Falls
Best Hike, Hard, Hot and Straight Up but beautiful.
Trying to cool off at the visitors center, which by the way I was highly disappointed in.
Dylan loved playing in the sand
Soda Springs - the water the carbonated, scientific mystery.
We did a lot of driving and some days were long. Here are some photos of the kids sleeping.
Josie and Della had a blast together and are best friends!
Great Basin National Park - definitely a different look, but so beautiful. Jordan and I got to go on a date hike to the peak. We went inside Lehman Caves, Dylan and I only made it half way through. We got to stay in the border inn, which is a fun little motel on the Utah Nevada border. It was so much fun.
