Visit to Yosemite National Park

Yosemite was a gorgeous place and if I could, I would visit there again.  We went with our grandparents and it was an incredible 5 days.  Yosemite has the most amazing view with waterfalls, rocks, pine trees, and other spectacular scenes.  People come from around the world to see this wondrous park. 

Every day there was a new activity planned.  On the first day, we decided to go hike up to Vernon Falls. The hike was all up hill and difficult, but it was worth it.  Vernon falls was the most gorgeous waterfall I had ever seen.  As the water crashed down the waterfall shot out this spectacular rainbow with all the colors. When you were on the top of the waterfall, you could feel the mist of the waterfall shooting out and you could smell the pine forest ahead.  We rested at Vernon Falls for about a half hour, and then my family and I split. My grandma and my twin brother and sister went down back to camp while my grandpa and my sister Sarah and I trekked up to Nevada Falls.  Nevada Falls also had a beautiful waterfall.

Ready set go!
After this long trek up and down it was close to 6pm so we decided to go to the river by our place.  The boat was big and we were in the river for a while jumping out of the boat and paddling.

The nights were something we all looked forward to because that meant s'mores and fire. Every morning, we would collect wood for the night’s camp fire.

Another day I enjoyed was horseback riding.  Sarah and I each went on a horse to mirror lake.  Bart my horse was a beautiful milk chocolate color. Sarah had a mule named Ned who was dark black with a touch of white on his face.  I hadn’t been on a horse by myself for a while, but I didn’t have to worry because Bart took over.  Yosemite is a place that I will never forget, and I would love to go camping here again.
