During our 2-week road trip of the West Coast, we decided to take two nights to go inland east to visit the beautiful Yosemite National Park! I have heard nothing but AMAZING things about this National Park of ours and of course everyone knows about the infamous El Capitan and Half Dome, so those were “must-sees” of mine. I wanted to see all of it in just 2 days and nights, but I quickly learned that this beautiful park deserves much more time. Yes, you can technically see “the highlights” of Yosemite in two nights, but to truly experience it the way it deserves to be experienced; I would highly recommend at least five nights, if not a full week as this park is HUGE. Next time my husband and I go, we will be there for at least seven days! As after visiting this first time, I have added things to do in this park to my mile-long bucket list.
