This spring, we had a wonderful couple of days in Yosemite Valley. We camped in the Upper Pines and took the free shuttle around the valley to different hikes and lookout spots. We packed many adventures into our short trip, but I imagine it’s a wonderful place to be if you have a longer time to spend exploring and admiring the natural wonders of the park.
If you're planning a trip to Yosemite, these are the things I would recommend doing while you're there:
Yosemite is one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been, and I would love to go back during the summer when you can raft in the river and camp when the weather is warm. Be sure to book your campsite as far in the future as possible, because like most California parks, spots fill up quickly.
