If you’re going to San Francisco

Early in the morning we have a small breakfast and leave Yosemite National Park for our final trip to Dublin, CA next to San Francisco where we have to drop off our vehicle. A sad moment, when you realise that now the final part of your vacation starts. But on the other hand we are really looking forward to see again this wonderful city.

Yosemite National Park

Like a picture book: Dana Fork at above 8200 ft. (2500m).

Yesterday we had an impressive trip through the desertlands of Death Valley and today we are ready to enter Yosemite National Park – a region like a picture book. We enter the park from the east like two years ago. The road is called Tioga Pass and is one of the most beautiful drives I know. That mountain pass in the Sierra Nevada is at an elevation of 9,943 ft. / 3,031 m.

We follow the route and although we already made that trip two years ago we stop at a lot of points to enjoy the astonishing views or to have a small hike into the breathtaking scenery.
