ABOUT THIS ADVENTURE FILM:
Let’s briefly talk about planning: camping in the national parks is difficult. It is difficult because during the summer months the official, in-park campgrounds usually fill up as early as January of the same year. Thus when attempting to do a “last minute” camping trip to a national park, especially one as popular as Yosemite, it makes things a little more difficult.
As we are driving into the park, we come upon the Wawona Campground – the first campground inside the park when approaching from the south gate. I thought we may as well look to see if there was anything available, because it didn’t hurt to look. As it turns out we snagged the LAST site available in the campground, which was so exciting! This meant that now we were only 30 minutes from the Valley rather than an hour and a half, and we could set up our tents in the middle of the day, rather than upon our arrival in the dark. Goals.
We made our way down to Yosemite Valley to admire the granite monoliths from the iconic Tunnel View lookout. It was truly spectacular. At the time of writing – as is the case in most September/Octobers – California is on fire. There are devastating fires all over the state, and smoke from those fires, as well as smoke from a controlled burn within the park were drifting down into the valley and slightly obscuring our view. Oh well – I’ve seen this park in a variety of conditions now, and I wasn’t letting this detract from the outstanding natural beauty that this park displays.
The big event of the day was our expedition to Taft Point – an outlook 4000 above the valley floor on Glacier Point Rd, near the actual Glacier Point. I have wanted to go to Taft Point for the past 4 years, and I was extremely excited that we were actually going to be able to do it on this trip. After a brief 20 minute walk down the 1 mile trail from the road, we arrived just in the nick of time to experience the final moments of the intense golden rays of the sun burning their way through the valley. It was phenomenal.
It was incredible to experience the raw beauty of the Yosemite valley from a natural lookout with no railings, no road, and no tour busses. Everyone who was there with us was a different kind of tourist – they knew what they wanted to see and they made it happen!
Overall this brief 24 hours in Yosemite was completely magical, and I invite you to http://findyourphenomenal.com to see more photos from this adventure.
