      Mariposa und Yosemite NP

      September 16, 2022 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 25 °C

      Am heutigen Tag hieß es Abschied nehmen von San Francisco und die Anreise für den Yosemite Park vorzubereiten. Von unserem Autovermieter, gleich um die Ecke unseres Hotels bekamen wir einen ziemlich neuen Ford Escape und machten uns auf den Weg nach Mariposa.Nach ca 3 Stunden hatten wir unser Ziel erreicht. Mariposa wurde während des Goldrausches in der Mitte des 19. Jahrhunderts gegründet. Zahlreiche Gebäude aus dieser Zeit sind noch unverändert erhalten, sodass man sich hier wie in einen Wildwestfilm versetzt fühlt, ein bisschen „Unsere kleine Farm“.
      Am nächsten Morgen sind wir sehr früh aufgestanden um die Zeit im Yosemite zu nutzen.
      Der Yosemite-Nationalpark liegt inmitten des Gebirgszugs der Sierra Nevada entlang der Ostseite Kaliforniens.
      Allein schon die Anreise ins Yosemite Valley war atemberaubend.
      Geprägt wird der Park durch charakteristische Landschaftsformen: das Yosemite-Tal, die Mammutbaumhaine sowie die alpine Hochgebirgswelt.
      Mit einem Shuttle Bus kann man die Highlights anfahren und nach kurzen Wanderungen bestaunen was wir dann auch gemacht haben. Inmitten dieser gewaltigen Landschaft kommt man sich selbst wieder ein bisschen näher.

      Yosemite Nationalpark

      March 25, 2018 in the United States ⋅ 🌫 9 °C

      Heute startete wir mit einem gemütlichen Frühstück im Hotel in den Tag! Anschließend hieß es „Check out“ und ab in die Post Street! Dort nahmen wir unseren Van in Empfang und machten und zum ersten Mal selbst auf den Weg durch die Straßen von San Francisco! Erster Stop führte uns in die Kindheit zurück! Alamond Square mit den Häusern im Victoria Stil, welche durch die beliebte Serie Full House bekannt wurden. Anschließend trauten wir uns über die steilste Straße der Welt, die Lombard Street! Nach einer erlebnisreichen Fahrt wurde das Auto geparkt und wir erkundeten den Pier 39 zu dem gestern keine Zeit mehr war. Die beeindruckende Kulisse war atemberaubend, das Getümmel der Menschen, die Seellöwen, der Blick auf die Golden Gate Bridge, und für den Adrenalinkick das 7D Erlebnis, bei dem es uns allen die Sprache verschlug :D weiter ging es mit dem Auto und dann endlich hautnah über die Golden Gate Bridge. Von den Hügeln in Sausalito hatte man wohl den besten Aussichtspunkt des Tages. Die Golden Gate Bridge mit der Skyline von San Francsico dahinter beeindruckt mit Sicherheit so ziemlich jeden! Diesen wunderbaren Tag Liesen wir im Cliffhouse bei einem tollen Ambiente, einem wunderschönen Blick aufs Meer und dem Sonnenuntergang ausklingen. Voll von tausenden Eindrücken machten wir uns anschließend auf den Weg ins Hotel Best Western Yosemite Way Station in Mariposa! Und dann gabs nur noch ein GUTE NACHT:)Read more


      Hallo wo seid ihr da?


      Ist wirklich toll bei euch, habe erst jetzt die Fotos gesehen!

      The Legend of Yosemite Sam...

      October 8, 2022 in the United States ⋅ 🌙 21 °C

      The leaving of Mammoth Lakes is much easier than the arriving to it.

      We're all up and about early - a result of a fairly sedate evening, and relatively early night, after such a long day yesterday. The view as the sun rises over the Sierra Nevada mountains is beautiful, and I'm sure my phone pics of it don't do it justice. We're due to have a fairly early lunch, so all decide to skip breakfast, and hit the road a little earlier than planned. The Juniper Springs resort we're staying at is lovely to look at in the early morning light, and likewise the town of Mammoth. I'm sure during ski season, it's a brilliant place to hang out...

      We get back onto my new favourite road (Route 395) and head North, rising from our current altitude of 8,000 to a ceiling of very nearly 10,000. Ant and I are both feeling the altitude a little bit - breathlessness for us both, a slight light-headedness for him (which he enjoys...) and a slight queasiness for me (which I do not). At our first stop, a sack of thick chunks of jerky is purchased, and when offered to me, it rather turns my stomach....

      Leaving the 395 behind, we head into the Tioga pass, the highest paved road in California, and which will take us deep into Yosemite National Park. I've been looking forward to this day SO much. I don't think it's a stretch to say that Yosemite is widely considered one of the most beautiful places on the planet. As soon as we're onto route 120, it becomes clear why. The scenery is breathtaking. Again, I doubt my phone pics really give a sense of the majesty and sheer scale of what we're seeing. We stop regularly as our path winds slowly through the park - a breathtaking rock escarpment here, an astonishing valley view there...

      We're aiming for the Ahwahnee Hotel for lunch at 12:45. I've been ultra excited about this - as I've managed to keep it a surprise from Ant and Vicks. The hotel was used extensively as a set for filming of the Shining. The scenes where Jack Nicholson is at his typewriter? All at the Ahwahnee... We arrive, and - for fuck's sake. There's literally nowhere to park. After driving around aimlessly for fifteen minutes, I deposit Vicki and Ant to let them at least know we're approximately nearby for our lunch reservation, and I keep hunting for a space. Another fifteen minutes pass without joy (well, not for me - others manage to turn up and grab a space before me. The fucking impudence...) and Vicki comes back out to tell me that the restaurant is in disarray. They have 'started late' today - which where I come from is code for 'the chef turned up late.' Our 12:45 lunch booking will be at least an hour late, possibly more... I tell Vicks that she and Ant should finish their drinks and we'll head off to find lunch somewhere else. Another 10 minutes pass, and I FINALLY manage to snag a space. Heading indoors, I'm greeted by my travelling brethren who have (contra to my instructions) secured me an ice cold beer. It is incredibly welcome... We have a little wander around the hotel, and it's v cool to see the parts that were used for filming. We then enquire about our table, and are told that the hotel staff tried to contact us to let us know the table was ready, but because we didn't reply (by standing right next to them!?) our table has been given away. I sense this conversation could end very, very badly, so we pile back in the car, and head south to Wawona.

      It's pushing 14:30 by the time we arrive into Wawona, which is really just a gas station, general store, and small hotel. We enquire at the hotel about the possibility of lunch, but are told that service ended at 14:00. Looking increasingly desperate, we're directed to the general store, where we pick up a few sandwiches.

      Our next pit stop was due to be the Sequoia Groves, a few miles south of Wawona. When we arrive, there's a loooooong queue in the baking hot sunshine for the shuttle bus to the groves. Sensing mutiny, I suggest we get back on the road, and head straight for our overnight stop in Mariposa. We arrive by 16:00, to an amazing little house right off Main Street. A wickedly strong G+T later, and we've all relaxed. We head out to one of the local hostelries I've read good things about, and have a fab early dinner in a very cool little restaurant. By 22:00, we're all fixing for bed again, and it's another early-ish night for us all...

      Day 25 - Never Underestimate The Planet

      May 16, 2019 in the United States ⋅ 🌧 7 °C

      Woke up early feeling more than a bit excited about what the day had in store for us. I was aware that we had had heavy rainfall over night & the peaks of Yosemite had received a large dump of snowfall.

      We got ourselves ready & walked a few doors down to an old fashioned American Diner called the Sugar Pine Cafe. We sat down in a booth & ordered our breakfast. I ordered scrambled eggs with bacon & sausage, English muffins & cheese grits. Jackie ordered French Toast, eggs & sausage patty. This was washed down with unlimited coffee.

      Having placed our order we then realised that our biking buddies, Doug & Russ, were sat at the counter with their breakfast. We gave them a wave. Our breakfast arrived & was delicious. Cheese grits are a bit of an acquired taste, basically macaroni cheese, but polenta instead of macaroni. It came in a bowl as a stodge.

      By the time we had finished, customers were queuing outside to get in. Jackie counted out her shekels & went to the till to pay or bill of over $30. The waitress informed her that our cheque had been taken care of......by Doug & Russ. We were blown away by their kindness & went over to thank & say goodbye to them.

      We went back to our Lodge & got ourselves ready for the day. We headed north on California 140 (scenic route) & by god was it. The sun was out & we followed the Merced River through Stanislaus National Forest, El Portal & to the entrance to Yosemite National Park, where my Pass was accepted through the Fast track lane.

      As we followed the road towards Tunnel View & Valley View, the scenery was spellbinding. We kept stopping for a photo only to realise that the next stop was an even better view. Our 1st stop & walk was to the foot of Bridalveil Falls. The trail was just 0.4 miles, but it was so worth it. I wasn’t really prepared, protective clothing wise & got soaked. It is at this time of year that the waterfalls are at their most powerful & the spray is unavoidable.

      Drenched, we returned to the car & meandered on, repeatedly stopping for photos of the amazing granite monoliths of El Capitan, Leaning Tower, Cathedral Spires, Three Brothers, Glacier Point, Half Dome, Sentinel Dome, Taft Point etc etc. Eventually we arrived at Yosemite Village Visitor Center.

      We visited the Visitor Center, Museum & Ansel Adams Gallery, then headed to the Lower Yosemite Falls Trail for more sodden selfies. We then returned to an information tent, where I had it confirmed what I already suspected, Tioga Road & Glacier Point were still closed due to snow. Sadly these are some of the Yosemite highlights (a good excuse to come back another time).

      I enquired as to what they suggested for a couple of mile hike & it they suggested either the Mist Trail to Vernal Fall or the flat easy trail to Mirror Lake & requested we use the shuttle bus. Jackie chose the Mirror Lake Trail, so we located the Free Shuttle Bus to stop 17 (Mirror Lake). On the bus, there was an excited buzz that bears had been seen between in the vicinity of where we were going.

      It was approximately 1 mile there & 1 mile back. We set off at a hot pace on the on the wooded path route as opposed to the road. Unfortunately the heavens suddenly opened & we were drenched. We waded through the puddles & up & down the slippery path until we arrived at Mirror Lake (or pond as it should be called).

      Unfortunately, Mirror Lake was more like ‘Shattered Mirror Lake’. The pounding rain was preventing the water provide a reflection. We bravely posed for photo & I took a reciprocal photo. I then enquired whether it was worth continuing around the lake or whether it was best to go back the way we had come.

      The couple I asked mentioned that the route required some scrambling up rocks, I turned to inform Jackie, only to discover that she was doing her impression of a Sussex Veteran walking champion suffering for a severe bout of earwax. I had no choice, but to chase her back down the trail to the bus stop .

      We were saturated & had to squeeze ourselves on to the bus back to our car. Jackie had now decided that she was not going on any further trails today. She was happy to see Yosemite from the car. I started to head out of the park & stopped for photos of more amazing views.

      The most notable was El Capitan, where other visitors pointed out a tiny speck that was an orange tent / bed thing suspended over 3/4s of the way up the sheer rock face. The thought of being in that made my bum go funny!
      By now the sun was back out, but Jackie had had enough of getting wet. We started to drive out of the Park but I decided to take an alternative scenic route California 120 northbound to get back to our Lodge. Almost immediately the road started rising sharply & signs were flashing ‘ Be Sure to have Chains with you’. Surely it couldn’t be that bad!!

      Soon our ‘Scenic Route’ was in mist with slush on the roads & our car dashboard display started flashing an alarm that it was freezing conditions. Bizarrely the USB power stopped, we had no WiFi or phone service & it started to snow quite heavily.

      I pigheadedly ploughed on, quite literally, but eventually we started to head downhill & out of the National Park. The journey continued through heavy rain & cloud. My alternative scenic route had taken us on a journey about 100 miles out of our way. & we got back to our Lodge in Mariposa about an hour and a half after we should’ve done. Basically, I f**ked up, but I’m not admitting that to Jackie.

      When we arrived back at our Lodge just after 1815 hrs, we got sorted & ended up in the local pizza house. We shared a 12” pizza & a pitcher of beer, which caused a few head to turn. We bought a box of wine & retired to our room.

      FITBIT = 20,683 steps / 9.6 miles.

      No Yosemite sondern Ruhigen in Mariposa

      July 14, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 29 °C

      Heute haben Juli und ich uns dafür entschieden, nicht noch einmal in den Nationalpark zu fahren, sondern in Mariposa zu entspannen. Der Tag hat uns gestern schon ziemlich gestresst und das wollen wir nicht noch einmal. Die wunderschönen Points of View haben wir alle gesehen, daher bleiben wir in Mariposa. Ganz in Ruhe frühstücken, Buch lesen und die verschlafene Kleinstadt Mariposa erkunden.
      Let‘s Go 😊

      Nach dem Juli und ich bis 16 Uhr einfach nichts gemacht haben außer entspannen, lesen, sonnen und Bier trinken, sind wir dann doch noch einmal hoch und haben Mariposa besichtigt. Mariposa heißt übrigens übersetzt Schmetterling.

      Das Bummeln war total schön.
      Ich habe mir sogar ein schönes Shirt gekauft, wo Mariposa drauf steht. Einfach eine coole Erinnerung an den wirklich tollen Ort hier.
      Auch jetzt haben wir wieder gemerkt, wie sympathisch die Menschen hier sind. In jedem Geschäft kommst du ins Gespräch mit den Einheimischen bzw. man interessiert sich für dich. Eine Frau und ein Mann haben uns übrigens bestätigt, dass der Yosemite im Sommer, gerade an Wochenenden, eine Katastrophe ist. Insbesondere der Naturgedanke, der durch die fetten Trucks zerstört wird, stößt sehr sauer bei den Einheimischen auf.

      Mahlzeit ihr Beiden, also bei Euch. Das macht auch Sinn. Ihr habt noch 2 Wochen toller Erlebnisse vor Euch. Entspannt Euch, es ist ja Sonntag 👌😉


      Genau, das dachten wir uns auch. Der Yosemite ist wunder wunderschön, aber die Automassen und Menschenmassen war nichts für uns. 🙁😉


      Nicht schlecht die App. Quasi wie ein Tagebuch 🤗


      Hey Mo Pe. Die App ist super. 😊 Wer bist du denn überhaupt? 😀

      Ankunft Mariposa

      July 12, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 29 °C

      Nach ca 700 km und 9 Stunden Fahrtzeit sind wir in Mariposa angekommen. Zuckersüßes, amerikanisches Dörfchen. Viele amerikanische Bars, von der Straße trillert Country-Musik!
      Super cool! 👍🏻😁
      Unser Motel ist das älteste in Mariposa.
      Sehr klein, aber sehr gepflegt! Als wir dort eintrafen, war die Rezeption geschlossen, aber draußen hing ein Hinweisschild mit den Namen, auf die die Zimmer gebucht waren (siehe Bild). Dazu die Notiz: „Room keys are outside of the room doors“. Und tatsächlich, die Zimmerschlüssel steckten einfach von außen drin 😅 Für uns Europäer eigentlich undenkbar, und trotzdem total cool! Die gerade mal 10 Zimmer des Hotels/ Motels sind alle unmittelbar nach draußen auf die „Veranda“ ausgerichtet. Das Hotel wird von einer super netten Amerikanerin betrieben und morgens gibt es selbstgemachtes Müsli zum Frühstück. Man fühlt sich direkt total heimisch und wenn man auf der kleinen Terasse sitzt, kann man schon die Berge und Wälder des Yosemite bestaunen.

      Nach der Ankunft haben wir uns kurz frisch gemacht und sind dann direkt los, um etwas zu essen zu finden. Die Straßen runter war ein echt schickes italienisches Restaurant. Nur hatte der Koch leider schon Feierabend. Zwei Häuser weiter haben wir das “Charles Street Dinner House“ gefunden. Ein Restaurant, welches an den amerikanischen Westen des 19. Jahrhunderts erinnert. Ein leckeres Michelob Amberbock Darke Ale gab es vorab, bevor für mich ein leckeres Prime Rib kam und für Juli ein leckeres Hähnchen. Wenn man in dem Restaurant sitzt, hat man das Gefühl, jeden Moment kommt eine Kutsche vorbeigefahren oder ein „Ranger“ vorbeigeritten. Eine völlig faszinierende Welt 😅. Das Abendessen war very very delicious. Nach dem Abendessen sind wir erschöpft ins Bett gefallen.

      20. Tag - Back to the nature

      October 31, 2018 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 13 °C

      Nachdem wir heute ausgeschlafen haben fuhren wir eine Stunde weiter in einen etwas größeren Ort in dem wir bei Denny's gefrühstückt haben.
      Pappsatt und bereit für den Tag ging es weiter Richtung Yosemite Nationalpark.
      Der Highway 120, der Tiogapass, ist laut Internet ab November gesperrt und wenn man Google glauben wollte war er das auch schon.
      Da wir erst den 31.10. haben und der Pass nach Aussage des Hotels auf sein sollten, fuhren wir trotzdem in die Richtung. Das Risiko, noch einen riesigen Umweg fahren zu müssen nahmen wir somit in Kauf.
      Und endlich kam ein Schild "Tiogapass open".
      Somit bestand unsere Fahrtzeit heute aus nur 4 1/2 Stunden und nicht aus über 7 Stunden.
      Durch den Nationalpark fuhren wir entlang der Berge, der Bäume, die sich im Herbst schön verfärben und an einigen Seen vorbei. An manchen Stellen kam ein Schild "Bären kreuzen", aber unser Wunsch einen echten Bären zu sehen wurde noch nicht erfüllt.
      Unser Hotel für die nächsten Tage ist eine sehr urige Unterkunft, die ins Bild der Natur hier passt.
      Gleichzeitig werden wir hier auch vom Netz genommen, da Wlan 9 Euro für 12 Stunden kosten soll. So werden wir die nächsten 3 Tage ohne Handyabhängigkeit genießen können.
      Am Abend fuhren wir in den nächsten etwas größeren Ort Mariposa, 40 Minuten entfernt.
      Dort liefen viele verkleidete Kinder mit ihren teilweise auch verkleideten Eltern durch die Straßen und feierten Halloween. Ein sehr schönes Bild hier in Amerika. Sogar in Hotels, Tankstellen und Shops konnten die Kinder Süßigkeiten ergattern.
      Um noch einmal Wlan nutzen zu können gab es heute Abend Burger von Burgerking zum Abendessen bevor es zurück in unser Hotel geht.

      Day 24 - (I Left my RV) in San Francisco

      May 15, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

      Woke up at 6.00am for the next chapter of our travels.

      We showered, breakfasted, then I packed my rucksack. Next we set about cleaning the RV from top to bottom & chucking away gallons of salad dressing, cereal, cheese, milk, bread etc etc. The final job was to deal with poop pipe, which I bravely did on my own.

      It was going smoothly, albeit our neighbour offered me some ‘really’ useful advice about securing the pipe into the hole. Bit late now! I then turned on the tap to wash the pipe, but I had underestimated the power of the water pressure & suddenly my water hose was spraying water everywhere like an angry cobra, including at my neighbours caravan. Thank god he was on the other side. By the time, I had wrestled the water pipe into submission, I was saturated. Things were not going as planned.

      At 09.15am, we set out on our final drive in the RV. It was an hour & a half of purgatory, driving on Highway 580 in the the rain in a slow moving procession of vehicles. Anyway at 10.50am, we arrived at our final destination, the CruiseAmerica base in Newark, San Francisco.

      We arrived with a spotless RV & I noted that we had driven exactly 3,700 miles. We were dressed smartly & we handed our paperwork to the the check-in guy. He gave the van the once over & said it was absolutely fine. We even pointed out the broken plastic caused by Jackie’s head & he said it didn’t matter. We went into the office, signed off with them & received our $500 deposit in full. No mention of the little dink we had back in St. Louis. We are yet to hear thing about it, hopefully he was lost the bit of paper with our details!!

      First mission complete. Now to get a car rental. We decided Oakland International Airport some 20 miles away was probably our best bet. I spoke with the taxi drivers at CruiseAmerica & the quoted me $60 to the airport or $25 to the local railway station. Good old Uber got us a taxi 4 minutes later for just $31.

      The Uber taxi driver was Fijian and liked the Royal Family. He told us all about Prince Harry’s recent visit & whilst driving showed us on his phone photos of his friend in the British Army. We chatted along with him & persuaded him to drop us off at the Enterprise Car Rental office (it does 5% discount for Blue Light Card holders).

      When we entered the office it was chaos, so we let people go ahead of us until it was quieter. I explained our situation to him that I was looking to hire a car for a 60 day road trip across America to New York. Julian the manager started to look up what it would cost & showed us the ridiculous price of over $6,000. It was a fixed price & as we knew one way drop offs cost a fortune. He didn’t have any relocations. This was not going well, so we told him to serve another customer.

      In the meantime we spoke to his dappy colleague, who was interested in our intended trip. She mentioned that it might be worth going halfway & hiring a car for 30 days then hiring another. She mentioned this to Julian, who looked on his computer & asked where we would want to drop off a car in 30 days. How could I say where we were, probably somewhere in Texas. I think Julian was having a bad day, because he just gave up & said “You can have a car for 30 day for $1,000 & I don’t care where you drop it off”. I queried this & he said “Yes, just give them my name”.

      A customer who had come in & was listening piped “Wow that’s a good deal, it’s showing as $1,400 without the one-way fee”. She was married to an Englishman & was interested in our travels. I took Julian’s business card as insurance, in fact we not sure how insured we are as we turned down all of theirs. Anyway, as a result of our negotiations, we became the proud owners of a royal blue Nissan Sentra, not quite what Jackie had in mind. Still it was a bargain!

      Then in the drizzle, we followed the tail-lights out of the city, moving in a river of red, along Highway 580 & stopping in so we non-descript place for a McDonalds & to take stock. We felt like vagabonds with no place to go, so we got on Booking.com & sorted ourselves out with 2 nights in a motel in Mariposa.

      The journey through Manteca, Modesta & Merced was dull & tedious, traffic jam followed by traffic jam. Eventually we turned off towards Yosemite National Park & Mariposa, where there road weaved through rolling wheat fields. Conscious of the insurance situation we were lucky enough to get a Highway Patrolman to follow us all the way into Mariposa.

      Mariposa turns out to be a lovely little old fashioned town with a high street full of bars & restaurants. We checked into the Americas Best Value Inn Mariposa Lodge, our home for the next 2 nights. We immediately popped down to the local off-licence & purchased a drop of wine & beer, plus pork scratchings & dill pickle crisps. Outside there were a couple of hillbillies that were filthy, totally out it on some spice like drug. Not a good advert, but they seemed harmless enough.

      Returning we sat on out veranda & got talking to bikers, Doug & Russ. We spent over an hour chatting about places we should visit & routes we should take. They had just come out of Yosemite NP & were able to give us advice on what to visit, current weather conditions etc. Whilst sat there a bright red hummingbird hovered just in front of us. It was a lovely end to the day.

      FITBIT = 8,881 steps / 4.12 miles.

      Yosemite Nationalpark

      March 26, 2018 in the United States ⋅ 🌫 7 °C

      Der heutige Tag führte und gleich nach dem Frühstück in den berühmten Yosemite Nationalpark. Das Navi wollte uns den Weg verkürzen und führte uns in die amerikanische „Pampa“. :D glücklich darüber, dass wir Weder hängen geblieben noch einen Platten hatten, drehten wir um und machten uns auf der offiziellen Straße auf den Weg. Schon die Anfahrt brachte uns zum staunen. Leider war der Mariposa Grove mit den berühmten Mammutbäumen geschlossen, jedoch machte dies der Park mit seiner tollen Atmosphäre und der gigantischen Landschaft wieder gut! Der strahlende Sonnenschein war den ganzen Tag unser Begleiter! :) bei einer typisch amerikanischen Pizza ließen wir den tollen Tag ausklingen.Read more
