Yosemite National Park

A Bucket List Camping Trip

Sunrise at Glacier Point

we woke up early enough to watch the rays of the sun paint the landscape at Glacier Point & brew coffee in the frigid cold

watching people unload from tour busses in National Parks like sheep, completely missing the art between the trees. heading back to their hotels, trying to decide which creek I should wash my hair in next

6am can be pretty lonely in the valley. Thankfully, deer make great company.

Smiling. A lot of smiling. We camped outside the park, near a creek, where we would bathe.

Oh and of course, we hiked to the top of Yosemite Falls, North America’s tallest waterfall.

Hiking to the top of Yosemite Falls is a strenuous 7.2 mile (11.6km) round trip trek with 2700ft elevation gain & rewarding views throughout.

Although many who begin do not finish the entire route, Upper Yosemite Falls is such a rewarding hike.

One of North America’s most beloved National Parks, Yosemite provides landscapes that resemble paintings, each feature more breathtaking than the last.

Incredible scenery, a bucket list hike, dirtbag camping.... yeah. Hell yeah.

Oh, last but not least, don’t forget the coffee.

Alllllll the coffee.
