    Yosemite II

    July 19, 2017 in the United States

    Day 17: Okay Yosimite you're not that bad!
    When I woke up the dust was gone and the sky blue again.
    After taking a shower I decided to hike the Mist Trail. Probably the most difficult and longest hike could choose how I noticed later. I hiked along two powerful waterfalls up to Half Dome. I reached the top after 5 hrs and all 4 litres of water I brought were gone. The outlook was such amazing!
    So I needed to go down again. Without water! My legs were very shaky and I was absolutely dehydrated. Almost 4 hrs later I got down and was absolutely done.
    Later I found Antonia and Leo we went to the backpacker campground eating some pancakes and went to sleep.

    Yosemite I

    July 18, 2017 in the United States

    Day 16: O my gosh! Yosemite is not gonna be my favourite national park so far! 😧
    When I woke up I drove to Bodie. This is an old ghost town. Nice to take photos ;-) On my way to Yosemite I found a beautiful and huge lake called Mono Lake.
    When I got to Yosimite I picked up two hitchhikers from Cologne and Switzerland that was hiking the PCT. Those two I took to Yosemite Village. They were on the way to San Francisco.
    Afterwards I started looking for a car park. 2 hrs later!!! I found a lil space for my car that wasn't official at all.
    I hiked to the Yosemite Fall seeing some mooses and returned to my car again. I moved it to an official car park at Half Dome Village and ordered a pizza that the hitchhikers have recommended.
    When I returned to my car I was wondering why my car is grey not even black and I saw a strange dust in the air all the time. While I ate my pizza I spoke to a woman and her daughter. They told me that there is a forest fire south western of the Yosimite. Actually you was able to smell the fire in the air.
    I was afraid that the western exit gonna be closed so I decided to leave the park and sleep outside (8pm). A lot of people wanted to do that so the traffic went very slowly. I drove down the 140. But after about 1 1/2 hrs I was stoped by the police because the road was closed because of the fire. So I turned back to Half Dome Village where I started parked my car and slept in it - definitely tired (11:30pm)!

    What a day! 😧

    San Francisco - Yosemite NP

    September 17, 2016 in the United States

    Mit dem Yosemite stand nun der nächste Nationalpark auf unserem Reiseplan. Doch zunächst lag eine 350 km Reise vor uns, die sich bei max Tempo von 55 Meilen schon sehr zieht. Unterwegs legten wir Pausen bei Walmart und Starbucks ein, bis wir ohne nennenswerten Stau in den Park gelangten. Hier nahm das Unheil dann seinen Lauf. Eine gefühlte Ewigkeit dauerte es, bis wir endlich unseren Parkplatz erreichten. Man sollte solche Parks grundsätzlich in den Ferien und am Wochenende meiden 🙈Wir checkten schnell ein und fanden zu unserer Luxusunterkunft für die nächsten zwei Nächte. In kürzester Zeit lernten wir ebenfalls die Tierwelt im Yosemite kennen. Morgen werden wir uns den Trails widmen und mehr Fotomaterial zur Verfügung stellen.Read more

    Fahrt zum Yosemite National Park

    September 6, 2016 in the United States

    6. September:

    Wir haben unsren Mietwagen abgeholt und haben SF über die über 8 km lange Bay Bridge verlassen. Unglaublich lang diese Brücke! Und links und rechts davon nur das Meer.

    Auf unserem Weg lag ein Outlet Center, in dem wir noch shoppen waren (natürlich viel länger als geplant) und ein Supermarkt, in dem wir uns für die kommenden Tage eingedeckt haben. Als Obst- und Gemüsefan muss man bei diesen Preisen schon starke Nerven haben 😩

    Es war schon dunkel, als wir endlich im Yosemite Park ankamen. Am nächsten Morgen haben wir erst gesehen wie schön es hier ist, Eichhörnchen inklusive 🐿😍
