Back to the Forest
Somewhere on I-40 >>> Yosemite, CA
Drive Time: 6 hours
Woke up in the Prius happy that the nightmare was over. Returned to I-40 a short minute away from where we parked the Prius to sleep to continue the drive to Yosemite.
We spent most of the day in Yosemite admiring the giant sequoias in Mariposa Grove. It was refreshing to return to a forest and the trees were gigantic. The woods smelled amazing.
Yosemite is huge. So, after admiring the trees, we headed an hour north, remaining in the park the entire time, to view Yosemite Falls, the tallest waterfall in the US.
Wanting to stay as close to the park as possible, we tried to find camping outside the gate. Normally there are few problems. However, we struggled to find camping for the night. Thus, we ended up just pulling off the road and parking for the night. Sleeping in the Prius a second night in a row.
