    Arriving in Yosemite

    September 10, 2019 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 17 °C

    We left our Lake Tahoe cabin 10:30am and went to a playground for Theo so that he could move his body a bit before another long drive. The playground was really cool and relaxing for everyone and afterwards, Theo fell asleep in the car for almost 2 hours, which was really good.

    We had a stop in a small town called Jackson to buy some supplies for our camping trip in Yosemite. Lisa and I went to Walmart and Chris and Theo went to another playground. It took so long to do everything, that we didn’t leave Jackson until 6pm and arrived in Yosemite after the sun went down. It was a bit chaotic trying to set up our tents and entertain a very tired Theo, but we managed in the end. He fell asleep really quickly, which was a relief for Chris and I because we were both very tired.

    Unfortunately the weather was so much colder than we had expected - about 1-2 degrees at night. Judith was feeling sick and tried to book a cabin, but was unsuccessful and had to sleep in the car instead. The rest of us tried sleeping in our tents and although it was cold, I think it went really well. Theo woke up around 6am, which wasn’t so bad considering how cold it was.

    Carlon Falls

    July 18, 2017 in the United States ⋅ ☀️ 27 °C

    Today we went hiking again! Yesterday we went hiking as well. Today we climbed Carlon Falls. Carlon Falls trail head was 5 minutes by car (not long.) Carlon Falls has beautiful waterfalls that you can see if you hike until the top. We hiked for 40mins and we saw a river with little trout. Then, we met a man who was fishing. He said that we were not even half-way there yet, and he said that there is a very steep place up ahead because the rain washed the trail away, so it was going to be hard climbing up. And he was right, it was very very steep, everyone got tired(especially me and Conor) It was still very steep and we saw big rocks all-over the place. We had to climb on the rocks in order to walk to the next place. We saw dead trees, loads on the trail path and it was hard to walk through. When we finally reached the top , me and Conor found special rocks and cleaned them and kept it in our pockets. I lost one of mine and Conor thought he lost his...

    but he was sitting on it!

    The waterfall was beautiful and the water was so cold and the trail was sandy. My feet were super duper sandy!!😱😱😱😱 I hope I can see a waterfall as beautiful as this one, and not have dirty feet again.

    Yosemite (japanese)

    July 16, 2017 in the United States ⋅ 🌙 22 °C

    今日、レイクタホ から ヨセミテまで車で4時間かけていきました。スポチファイというアプリでみんなで音楽を聞きました。私がスポチファイ一番好きな歌はワナビー と ハンドクラップです。みなさん知っていますか。トイレきゅうけい🚽🚺に行った時にフリールミルクシェイクというものを買いました。1分でミルクシェイクが作れる機械で作りました。私はミントチョコ味を買いました。ミントがすごくスッキリして、チョコがベルギーチョコレートの味がして美味しかったです。ダデイが約50分ぐらい運転したら、雪が残ってる場所があったので、あそびました。全然さむくはなかったのですが、氷を触った時、冷たくて、手が痛くなりました。ホテルに着いたら、夕食に行く前に、スモアズというクラッカー、マシュマロとチョコのおやつを作りました。マシュマロを火であぶって、柔らかくして、クラッカーとチョコで挟みました。
