One of my favorite places to visit every once in a while is Yosemite National Park. It is just so breathtakingly gorgeous, particularly in fall! I love that it is only a 4 hour drive from the Bay Area, which makes it extremely doable for a weekend trip.We took this particular trip there in November of 2015. I desperately needed to get away for a day and forget about school, so we took off for the mountains! We drove most of the way on a Saturday night, stayed the night at a a small motel, and then drove the last hour to Yosemite early the next morning. My dog came along for the adventure, of course, and he loved every second of it. I think he fits in pretty well in the wilderness, don’t you? 🙂
I packed us a special picnic and we found a private area to enjoy it along the river. It was so nice sitting in nature and eating yummy food!Me and my favorite adventure partner 🙂I hope you enjoyed this peek into our fall Yosemite adventure! Looking through these photos has me wanting to go back again!
