Limited wifi so a short blog today [updated since].
We drove for nearly an hour from our accommodation early yesterday morning on the edge of Yosemite, right to the centre of the National Park. The Ranger here on site suggested leaving by 8am to get a reasonable parking space. It was quite quiet when we arrived at 9 but leaving at 3pm it was clear how right he had been. I’ve never seen so many cars parked on any spare spot of ground that wasn’t actually the road. That said, even for a Saturday, so vast is the National Park that there were times we were walking and the was no-one in sight which was lovely.
Yosemite has been majestic and different again from our other stops.
We leave here this morning for quite a long drive to the West coast to start the last leg of our trip; the less strenuous part if the planning was correct!
