Yosemite National Park – California

We decided to take two mini vacations in February to test out the RV. After a great weekend at Olema Campground to check out Point Reyes National Seashore (2/7/20-2/10/20) we took a week off and then headed to Yosemite Lakes RV Resort to check out Yosemite National Park (2/21/20-2/24/20). We had a wonderful time on both trips. We also feel like living in the RV full time is not the best option for our family at this time. Camping in it for the weekend is much different than what is required for a full-time RV lifestyle.

We stayed at Yosemite Lakes RV Resort in Groveland, California but we spent very little time there so I don’t have a separate post about it.

Yosemite National Park is huge! We had time for 2 hikes, one on Sabbath and one on Sunday. We also stopped at several vistas and photo ops as we drove through the park. This post will have photos of our random stops and I’ll have 2 other posts coming soon, one for each hike.

“There’s definitely a heart to Yosemite. I always say God saved up the best bits of creation and spent them here.”

A quote from my Grown-up Book of the Month, Where the Fire Falls by Karen Barnett (page 32).

    1. Thank you! It’s a special place.

      “Yosemite is a place of healing. It draws broken people – folks trying to understand why they’re on this good, green earth.“ (Karen Barnett, Where the Fire Falls, pg 58)

      I hope you can make a trip there sometime to experience the majesty of the place first hand!

    1. Now, climbing half dome, that would be something! You are, as always, an impressive outdoors woman! E did a lot of climbing there in his 20s. He has lots of special memories of the park.
