I took a day trip to Yosemite this weekend, and it is absolutely beautiful up there. I’m born and raised in LA and never been before- I can’t believe it took me this long to go. It was the perfect day to explore…the weather was cool, crisp and sunny. We went to Cooks Meadow, Valley View, Turtle Back Dome, saw a bunch of streams and waterfalls, saw the massive El Capitan, Half Dome and even went ice skating in Curry Village. We stayed at the Historical Ahwahnee Hotel in the heart of Yosemite Valley, and I loved it! It had a real cozy, rustic cabin feel, and the food there was really good too. For the short amount of time I was there, I squeezed in a lot, but definitely want to go back and hike the Half Dome! (12 hours round trip!). I’ll be back soon, maybe to camp next time (ha). Check out a couple of my favorite pics from the trip!
