Time Off

August 11th, 2019 at 08:47 am

Our Yosemite trip was a success. It's only about 2.5 hours from our home, so lord knows why we only make it every 10-15 years or so. I think that will change now. We stayed in Mariposa, which was absolutely awesome. We rarely enjoy eating out (our home cooking is generally so much better), but every where we ate out was A+.

It was overall a very frugal trip, for one of the most amazing destinations in the world. BUT, we booked rather last minute and so the lodging was totally insane. Instead of spending $250/night or whatever in some hotel too far away, we did vrbo and rented a house. It was totally amazing. But bumped up our total cost to about $1,200. $1,000 of that was for the house (after taxes and fees and everything). We packed some food and packed lunches every day, to keep our costs down.

We had the quintessential Yosemite experience and even saw a bear (a little too close).

The hilltop view from the house was absolutely amazing, and the stars were also amazing at night.

I will leave you with a view of Paradise:

P.S. I did another post that is hidden by this one. Other than this nice treat, life continues to be extremely difficult.
