Jason and I are currently enjoying our final full day in Yosemite National Park. Tomorrow, we’ll be up early to drive into Yosemite Valley for some shopping and pizza. Plus, I don’t think I could visit the park without visiting the Valley. Then, we’ll be headed south to Sequoia/Kings Canyon!

Onto the next installment of my Yosemite 2010 recap!

Day 3 – June 7, 2010

The day began with deer hanging out by our tent cabin…

Which was followed by our first bear! Note: That was NOT our tent cabin. I was religious about using our bear box properly.

We visited the Ahwahnee Hotel twice: Once for a photography workshop and again for an evening guided “stroll.”

Day 4 was a biggie! A 7-mile hike up to Vernal Fall and Nevada Fall. Our “Adventure Hike.”
