After driving for about 4 hours from LA to the Yosemite National Park, we arrived to a snowy wonderland. The journey was so beautiful. There were picturesque mountains all around us and the sky was bright blue. I loved the scenery.Yosemite National Park California

Roots of the Sequioas at the Yosemite National Park California
The Yosemite was really spectacular. I had never seen such a huge trees. They were as high as a building. They were incredibly colourful. We saw a very old tree with a giant root fallen on the ground. The circumference of the tree was larger than I was. We saw another tree split in the middle. I was so minuscule around these giant ancient sequoias. The park was so beautiful. By the end of the day it started snowing heavily. The scenery looked so perfect in the snow. It was a real winter wonderland.
At night we stayed at the Tenaya Lodge. The hotel is one of the most prestigious hotels by the south entrance of the Yosemite. We had a very special experience in this beautiful, cozy hotel. It is a truly wonderful place to stay, during your visit to the national park.
The next morning we drove to the Yosemite Valley and hiked to the Half Dome. It was a large mountain that you could see from any point in the park. It was massive and beautiful.
From there, we continued to the Mirror Lake. The lake’s crystal clear water reflected the surrounding mountains. It was spectacular. After a quick lunch at the Yosemite Valley Lodge, we continued our day to the Yosemite Falls.
The waterfalls were really incredible. They were massive. They were the most incredible waterfalls I have ever seen. From there, we continued our journey to the Vernall Falls. It was slightly smaller than the Yosemite Falls we first saw, but it was also very beautiful.
Along the way, we saw beautiful deers along the road. They were not intimidated by us at all.
As we were driving out of the park, we witnessed one of the most beautiful sunsets I had ever seen in my life. The colors were unreal. The scenery and the sunset made me feel like I was part of the TV show Twin Peaks. We spent the evening chilling by the fireplace of our hotel. It was very beautiful.
When we woke up the next morning, everything was covered with snow. It was wonderful. We realized that the weather was not suitable for hiking, as we did not have proper shoes for the snow, so we decided to leave the park a bit earlier to escape from the snow and get back to the sunny part of California. From Yosemite, I got a ride to Merced, where I hopped on the Amtrak train to continue my journey to San Francisco. The Amtrak ride was not the best experience, but it is OK to try it once in a lifetime. The Yosemite was a truly amazing experience. I highly recommend a visit to anyone, who wants to recharge in nature for a couple of days.
