We stayed at the Yosemite Lakes Thousand Trails about 30 miles from the park.
Our camper is too big to camp in the park.
There was no cell or phone service for us at all, except we could get internet in the lodge.
We met several other couples camping and enjoyed sharing stories with them.
We parked and rode our bikes to the visitor center.
We saw a film on the park and learned about how the Sierras were formed
We bought some books about John Muir.
We took a short hike to the lower falls.
The upper falls called to us so we began our ascent.
It was very windy, but we kept going.
This is Upper Yosemite Falls, North America’s tallest waterfall (2,425 feet above the valley floor.)
Then we made our way back down to the visitor center.
Maybe next time we hike to the top of the Upper Falls!
