On the way to visit my parents in June 2010, we decided to spend a few days in the Yosemite
area. We visited a number of the usual tourist spots, including Glacier Point,
the Yosemite Valley,
and up the Mist Trail
to the tops of Vernal Fall
and Nevada Fall.
I made the mistake of basing us at a hotel in Sonora,
reasoning that it would be cheaper than staying at lodging closer to Yosemite. Boy, that was a big mistake! These two locations may look fairly close on a map, but in reality they are quite far apart — 75 miles and nearly two hours of driving on back-road highways! So each day there was a tiring two-hour drive from the hotel to Yosemite, and then at the end of the day an exhausting two-hour drive back. By the end of three days I was really wiped out!
