    September 26, 2016 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 19 °C

    The first day in Yosemite NP we tackled a trail recommended to us by a grumpy ranger so we should have known better and it ended up being pleasant but pretty uninspiring considering where we are.

    The next morning was another cold one (6C inside, but we are at 10,000 ft) but gloriously sunny so we headed back the few hundred metres into the park. We found a spot with enough signal to get a call out and we were pretty gobsmacked when we were told we'd won the daily lottery to get Half Dome permits for the following day.

    We hiked up to Cathedral Lakes but this time it was a glorious walk with majestic scenery. These huge scarred and also polished rocks jutting up out of the hillside and rising hundreds/thousands of feet. It was about 12 miles and fairly up and downy so we were feeling it when we eventually stopped for the night. The camping arrangements here are crazy - even at this time of the year the only available reservations are over a month away and there is pretty well sod all around! Rather than pay $25 to camp in front of a long-dead (vault toilet) in basically a layby, we found a much nicer and free pull out up the valley. Now we've dropped down to 2,000 ft the temperature has soared and its 33C at 6pm, which makes a very pleasant change to the past couple of cold nights.

    Tuolomne Meadows

    July 10, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 22 °C

    Heute ging es in die atemberaubende Landschaft des Yosemite Nationalpark. Wir sind im unserem Campingplatz nahegelegendsten nordöstlichen Teil, Tuolomne Meadows, geblieben und haben uns dort zwei Wanderungen rausgesucht. Der Aufstieg zum Lembert Dome war anstrengend und wir waren froh, als wir ihn geschafft hatten. Aber wir waren doppelt froh, wieder gut unten angekommen zu sein. Die Aussicht war all die Mühen wert. Die zweite Wanderung ging vom gleichen Wanderweg ab zu einem kleinen, im Wald versteckten See. Den haben wir umrundet und sind dann noch zum Picknickplatz an einen etwas größeren, den Tenaya Lake, gefahren, um unseren Kuchen zu essen. Dann ging es zurück durch die Granitlandschaft zum Campingplatz. Hier haben wir uns etwas ausgeruht und ein einfaches Abendessen gekocht.Read more

    Der gigantische 3000m hohe Yosemite Park

    October 14, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 8 °C

    Einen leider sehr knappen Abstecher machten wir zum Yosemite Park🌺
    Auf Grund der niedrigen Temperaturen in der Nacht locker unter 0 Grad was nicht möglich ist mit unserem Buggsi (eher ein Wüsten Auto) 🏜🏜🏜🏜🏜🏜
    fuhren wir auf der Passstraße durch den Park wieder nicht so gut für meinen Magen 🤢 auch durch das ständige auf und ab bekamen wir häufig Kopfschmerzen in den Bergen ⛰⛰⛰⛰⛰⛰⛰⛰⛰⛰
    Nun sahen wir meiner Meinung nach den schönsten Bergsee 😍😘 glasklar mit Sandstrand auf 3000 m Höhe einfach genial 🤗
    und bei weitem nicht so zugebaut wie der lake Tahoe 😉

    To the top!

    July 18, 2017 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 20 °C

    The dome itself was really nice. The granite had lots of crystals embedded in it so it was very grippy for climbing. The last little bit was intimidating but Franklin and I scrambled to the top for the big view. Samantha may have shown better judgement to sit the last bit out!Read more

    It looks like you were the only climbers – is that right? Thanks for sharing these views with those of us who aren't fond of heights.

    Sam Dickerman

    There we're a few people here and there but b/c the campground was closed it was probably less crowded than usual. See you soon!


    Wow, amazibg views!
