Annual Yosemite trip

Every year Kathleen puts together a Yosemite camping trip. Miko and Caitlyn are usually our camping partners but they couldn’t come so we invited the Sardagnas. We headed up on Cinco de Mayo so a celebration was in order. I brought a sombrero and beads. I may have worn it half of the way up. 🙂 we needed some entertainment for the 6 hour drive.

Mario was awesome and brought tequila. We had a group of drinkers this trip. Our group consisted of Scott, Kathleen, Fabian, Keana, Amy, Gustavo, Christina, Mel, Grant, Mario, Laura, Ryan, and I. Gustavo and Christina brought up cherry moonshine. It was so strong but awesome. There were lots of laughs and stories around the camp fire passing around the beer, wine, tequila, crown,moonshine, etc.

But it wasn’t all drinking. We got some super hiking in. We typically go to the top of Vernal Falls. This time we went passed Vernal to Nevada falls and Liberty Cap. It was absolutely beautiful! It was about a 5 hour hike. We will definitely do that hike again. I can’t believe we’ve been stopping at Vernal all that time.

After our hike we hopped on our bikes and road to Yosemite falls. It’s always incredible the power those falls exude. We stood on the bridge getting wet and feeling the wind.
On our way out we looked back at the valley and made a promise that next year we will hike Glacier Point and make this a backpacking trip. Can’t wait!
