Hiking In Yosemite

Thursday, October 27, 2016

Fall is here. The leaves have turned orange, red and brown and are slowly falling off the trees. I used to love going outside and walk through a park, listening to the leaves under my shoes, but this year the weather in Berlin hasn't exactly been motivating to leave the house. Therefore, I wanted to share some memories of our days in Yosemite National Park, as I am sitting on my couch all cuddled up with some hot tea. 
My friends and I went on a road trip through California in September and Yosemite was for sure our favorite place along the way. We stayed in a cute motel in Mammoth Lakes, which is really high up in the mountains and only a 30 minute drive from the park. 
Before we went up there, we were exploring the Death Valley where we were sweating in the desert heat. However, while driving up the mountains I noticed that the temperature had dropped like crazy. All of the sudden it was only a couple degrees above freezing and we were still wearing out shorts and tops. Not exactly what you'd expect from a trip to Cali, right? At least the sun was shining and heated up the air during the days, which allowed us to have a great time exploring the area. 
We went on walks to a beautiful lake, a (dry) waterfall in the valley and also stopped in Bodie, an incredible ghost town just outside of Yosemite. It was so interesting to see the mine, the old houses and all the things people had left behind inside of them. There is a saloon, an old shell gas station and a school building with a wooden globe and dusty exam papers. 
Inside Yosemite I loved the view from Glacier Point the most. You could see so far and it was just breathtaking. It also might remind some of you of the MacBook background photos :D At least that's what I had to think about this whole time!

I hope you're enjoying the fall and live somewhere where the weather is at least a little nicer than here!

  2. Sieht wunderbar aus! Yosemite wollte ich auch unbedingt einmal sehen, leider habe ich es noch nie geschafft dies in meinen Amerika-Urlaub zu integrieren :D Aber es war hoffentlich nicht das letzte mal, dass ich die USA bereisen durfte :)
    Hab noch eine tolle Zeit,
