Yosemite National Park - California

June 4-8, 2021

The Yosemite Valley is more beautiful than I thought. I knew it was pretty, but some views I just did not want to leave. Planning the trip was a lengthy and frustrating process given how popular the park is and how NPS limited a lot of things given COVID-19 and my wife and I did not get to see as much as we had planned given her accident, but the trip was well worth our time and we may have to figure out how to return.
