Thursday morning I woke up with Yosemite not being anywhere on my radar but by noon I was planning to drive to Yosemite that night. I didn’t exactly need my arm twisted to get me to go, what a beautiful place! The drive was only three hours to a house in Bass Lake and then an hour drive the next day to the park itself. Even with the lack of heat and hot water at the house meaning no showers and no hot breakfasts it was totally worth the trip! The weather was gorgeous (in the 70′s) and the crowds were definitely less on Friday than on Saturday.
