After San Francisco, we drove to Yosemite, another winding but scenic drive. Our first sights were Bridal Veil falls and El Capitan.
Our home for the night was a "tent" cabin with three sides made of cinder blocks and the fourth just a canvas curtain. We had to make sure that all of our food and toiletries (anything that smells good) was put away in a bear-proof storage container. We even had to take Julia's booster seat out of the car because bears have learned that car seats often contain some yummy leftovers! Fortunately, we did not have any run-ins with a bear, but we did kind of hope to see a bear while we were in Yosemite.
Grant attempted to start a fire by rubbing two sticks together, but it didn't really work. Once I pulled out the matches and firewood, Kevin and Grant did a much better job of getting the fire going.
Olmsted point was much less crowded than Yosemite Valley. We were able to spend some time scrambling over the rocks and enjoying the view.
