West Coast USA 2005: Day 21 - 22

May 2005

Our last stop in our nearly 5 week USA trip. Yosemite was a new location for both of us, a rarity on this trip, and we were there at a perfect time of year, the falls were gushing and it was warm enough to enjoy the outdoors. Details of where to stay, eat and stop at the bottom.

We had breakfast one morning in the beautiful, historic Ahwahnee Dinning Room (our limited budget didn't allow for dinner or lunch there), but we enjoyed our breakfast there just the same

Pizza Deck at Curry Village

If you bring your own food (which we did for lunch and snacks) make sure you use the bear boxes provided, the food is not safe left in your car!

Curry Village Tent Cabins- like all the national parks book in advance. We were there before a long weekend and there seemed to be a lot of people staying for weddings?

If you like photography check out the Ansel Adams gallery, we brought a print, if you can buy an original (or have one!) I'm envious
Check out one of the evening programs, we went to one of the evening presentations, and best of all they're free
Great views from Glacier Point, this was recommended by one of our tent neighbours who holidayed every year in Yosemite and we would have never had know otherwise
Yosemite Valley for all the main attractions including Tunnel View, El Captain Meadow and Sentinel Meadow
The waterfalls of the Yosemite Valley including Lower Yosemite Falls, Bridalveil Falls, Horsetail Falls, and Nevada Falls
