We booked the Yosemite National Park tour the night before and had to get up at 5.15am that day. A little bit sleepy but excited we got on the tour bus where Nick our guide greeted us with an even sleepier face. We were pretty frustrated when we found out that we spent 1 hour in the bus picking up all the other people and the last couple actually stay at a hotel which was only a few minutes away from our hostel. We could have selected that pick up location as well and sleep about an hour longer! C’est la vie…I guess.
We arrived at Yosemite at around 11am and meanwhile Nick was wide awake telling us all about the park. We got to see some pretty cool things e.g. the giant sequoia trees which can get more than 3’000 years old and El Capitan, the largest exposed granite monolith in the world.
On the way back we made a little stop to enjoy view of the skyline and the sun setting behind it. What a great way to end that amazing day.
