Yosemite for Thanksgiving – November 2018

The day before Thanksgiving we headed out at 4:30am, hoping to beat the holiday traffic and the storm that was coming to Yosemite, stopping only for a potty break and Starbucks, then lunch. We arrived at Upper Pines (site 228) around 1:30 PM, the earliest we’ve ever made it! We also beat the storm. As…

24 Hour Trip to Yosemite & Hite Cove – April 2018

Our original plan was to stay in Monterey for 2 nights (see previous post), but when I realized my other family members were only staying 1 night, I proposed the idea to Scott of cancelling our 2nd night at the Lodge (no cancellation fee) and taking a spontaneous trip to Yosemite for one night. He…

2018 Road Trip Last Stop – Yosemite!

After a quick breakfast in Tonopah, NV, we set out for Yosemite. The drive just to the border of NV/CA seemed like forever, but once we got across the border it wasn’t too long until we started seeing prettier scenery.

2018 Road Trip – Part 2 – Canyonlands & Arches National Parks

The Moab Valley RV Resort Campground is a nice place in a great location with full hookups, essential for us in the summer heat of Moab. Each site has a little bit of grass, and the campground also has laundry facilities, Wifi (though unfortunately it was down the entire time we were there), showers, and…

Joshua Tree National Park – Feb. 2018

The theme of this trip was COOOOOLLLLDDD!  The low was 23 with a “feels like” 15 degrees, and very windy! In our pop up we used a propane heater and we were so glad to have it! On the first night there was even snow flurries! We stayed at Black Rock Campground (Site 68) which…

Summer Vacation June 2017 – Part 3 Yosemite-Wawona Campground

Our plan was to enter Yosemite via the Arch Rock Entrance since we’d never been there before, but there had been a rock fall in the area of the 140, so we went south and took the entrance near Fish Camp. We’d never stayed at Wawona Campground before and were pleasantly surprised. We were in…
