Yosemite & Sequoia National Parks | Spring Break

April 12, 2016

FINALLY!  It feels like Spring Break and my trip to Yosemite and Sequoia National Parks was months ago, but it was only a couple weeks.  Still, I have been busy pretty much non-stop since I got back and I’ve only just found the time to edit my photos.  While I did take A TON of photos, I didn’t actually take quite as many as I thought.  I really tried to soak up as much of the natural beauty as I could, because, well, Yosemite.

It was mine and my friend’s first time visiting Yosemite National Park, and it was absolutely stunning.  If you’ve never been, I cannot recommend it enough.  In just under one week we saw all of the big sights – El Capitan, Half Dome, Yosemite Falls, Vernal Falls, Nevada Falls, Bridalveil Falls, Mirror Lake, and more! – we went on several hikes (including the spectacular Mist Trail), showshoeing on the mountain with a park ranger, and we even visited the Yosemite Mountain Sugar Pine Railroad (I love hokey, tourist traps, and trains)!

I tried to keep the photos here to a minimum; I hope you enjoy!  :)

It was an incredible, memorable trip that I won’t soon forget, made all the more special because I was able to share it with one of my best friends.  It was one of those trips where you instantly know it’s going to be great, when you’re happy/exhausted at the end of each day and where you come away with as many inside jokes as amazing photos.  I kinda can’t wait to go back!  ;)

Have you visited any of the National Parks?  Which one do you recommend I hit next??

As always, thanks for reading!

Delightfully, Kristi (signature)

    I miss it already… I’m still trying to write the lyrics for “I left my heart in Yosemite” set to “I Left my heart in San Francisco.” Also, lets go to the Mojave National Preserve… they have caves/lava tubes!
