since we are still part timers and cross country trips are going to be a once a year event at best for a while, we have not fit a tow car into our plans (or budget) yet. Since we were camping just outside Yosemite, we had the adventure of driving down into Yosemite Valley with the RV and WHAT AN ADVENTURE! When we came out of the tunnel and saw the valley in front of us, I was still reluctant to pull over into the Tunnel View parking lot with the big RV but luckily I decided to go for it. Once we spent some time there I was so glad I took the time to stop (and relax my knuckles). Getting back out on the road was a bit of a chore with a 33 foot RV, but the view was so worth it!
you can’t see it from here, but that narrow looking valley is very, very wide with roads, large parking lots, recreation sites, campgrounds, stores, restaurants and other national park facilities! The solid Granite mountains are so huge they dwarf everything else.
here’s a few of my favorite sights from the valley.
I would love to spend a week or more camped in Yosemite Valley so I could explore the trails and many other sights I could reach by bike or car from a base camp in the valley. I’ll be back some day.
