Visited Yosemite National Park, California

Tuesday, February 2, 2021

Our first trip to Yosemite National Park was this last Labor Day weekend. Yosemite National Park is a place of incredible natural beauty that really should be experienced in person. There is so much to do and appreciate at Yosemite. Since we have a baby and can't take that hike so  we went head to the lookout at Tunnel View. The views include Half Dome, Glacier Point, Sentinel Dome, and the El Capitan.  


Yosemite has a day-pass reservation system during our visit because of COVID. The reservations are required in an effort to control the crowds and slow the spread of COVID-19. Is it a hassle? Yes, it is. However, we were fortunate enough to score a reservation last September 2020.  We never experienced crowds this low in the valley. So you have to take the good with the bad. Masks are enforced. I can understand if someone takes off their mask to hike but the public areas and shops are half full and customers practice social distancing.


Yosemite National Park is known for its beautiful scenery, gorgeous waterfalls, giant sequoias, and granite mountains & cliffs.




 

El Capitan is a beast. In my opinion, the best view of El Capitan is from up close.


You absolutely must stop by here for some photos. Excellent iconic view of El Capitan and the valley.


Yosemite is one of the most beautiful National Parks in the United States.

Everyone especially the residence of California should visit Yosemite NP once in their lifetime.  It is just so stunning! You will enjoy this magnificent park and be sure to experience nature respectfully and safely.
