travel: 36 hours in yosemite

our only full day in yosemite was quite the blur.  actually, it was such a blur and we had so much fun, we decided to stay an extra half-day!

if you only have 36 hours (or so) in yosemite, here are my recommendations:

  • stay in el portal, which is a town right outside of the park.  it’s cheaper and we stayed at a great b&b.
  • hike to a waterfall (or a few!)  we went to vernal falls and it was super crowded but beautiful.  beware, it’s a strenuous hike (lots of stairs).
  • admire the views from tunnel view & glacier point – this is a long drive, but VERY worth it.
  • see the sequoia trees in mariposa grove (this is a half day activity)
  • take TONS of pictures – you could be the next ansel adams!
