Good morning Dad.
Today we were driving to the Yosemite National Park. There we will stay two days, before we will travel on to Death Valley.
Here I can show you our car, we rent for our trip. Isnít it huge?
We were sitting comfortable on the backseat.
On our way to the park, we saw this pretty lake and this cool view when we were making some breaks. But it was so hot outside that we didnít left the car for too long.
After approx. four hours we finally arrived at the Park. The first thing we saw here was a forest from burned trees and bushes. It was really strange to see something like this.
We took the chance and climbed down a small hill, to have a first view over the park.
Unfortunately we had to climb up the hill again, to go back to the car.
After a while we arrived at Curry Village. Here you can see our cabin for the next two days. In front of the cabin stands a bear box. There we had to put all our food and shower stuff in, so that the bears wonít get them.
Then we decided to use the time to walk to the Mirror Lake, to see the Sunset there. On our way we walked along the Visitor Centre.
It was a long walk, but it was nice because we had a nice view around us.
Then we arrived at the Lake, just right for the Sunrise. Unfortunately there wasnít much water at the lake, so we havenít the feeling of a mirror. But it was I nice Sunset.
Next to the Lake we saw these cool towers.
After the sun set of, it was quickly getting dark. And because we were afraid of bears and mountain lions we quickly went back to Curry Village.
It was a long day and I am really tired. So good night and see you tomorrow.
