Day 89-90: Sequoia National Park and Yosemite National Park, California.

Believe it or not, even with the wealth of photos in the last post, I still managed to leave one out. Once we turned away from the General Sherman (biggest tree in the world), we were racing with the sun to gather the last few shots we could get. We were just in time to see the last glimpse before it disappeared completely.

Now onto the next day. America is all about the big, and so was Glacier Point. Just high enough to get a tiny bit of altitude sickness, which was most likely a mind over matter situation, we drove up to 8000 feet above sea level. Due to the time of year (end of October) a lot of Yosemite was closed, so Glacier Point was one of the few places that were left to view in all its glory.

when we first arrived, the area was covered pretty thickly in clouds.

Before we let the British in us out and start grumbling about the weather, we decided to wait a little while.

It paid off. Both for us and the recently married couple. There’s not an awful lot to say about this day that isn’t covered in the pictures, so I’ll just leave it with a few more photos. Glacier Point in Yosemite is pretty accessible, as it’s only a short walk away from the car. We tried to make up for this lack of adventurousness by decorating our shots with the pretty leaves. I think I nailed it with my shot of Dan. We’ve also learnt this cool trick of turning round and looking the wrong way when smiling for photos. It makes us look more travel-wise.

  1. AGain another fabulous use of words and pictures to let us feel part of it. It’s good you are describing the camera techniques etc (even if some are a bit tongue in cheek haha!), makes it feel even more like you are talking with us rather than at us. Stay safe as you head south, but carry on exploring xxx
