3:30am: Left our RV Park, in Groveland, as it would take 2 hours to drive up to Glacier Point.

5:00am: Reached a major turn. Checked the weather for Yosemite National Park and it said it’s 32F. Not sure if that’ll be the temperature at Glacier Point (7,214’) but we’ve bundled up.

5:30am: Right on schedule. Arrived at the parking lot and only 6 cars so far. You already get a glimpse of Half Dome from the parking area.

Headed towards Glacier Point (not Four Mile Trail which would be "...is 4.6 miles, descending 3,200 feet in elevation. Walking time 2-3 hours. Steep switchbacks will lead you down into Yosemite Valley near Yosemite Lodge.").

Found a great spot for a few photo-ops:

Ok, what are we looking at down there:

There’s Vernal Falls, which we hiked the other day. It was strenuous but worth it!

Walking around and looking back at the trail:

There’s Upper and Lower Yosemite Falls which we had biked to the other day.

And there’s the famous Half Dome:

Time to head into Yosemite Valley for breakfast. Left the area sealed with a kiss:

On This Day in History
