A Quick Getaway to Yosemite

Ever since our foray into Airstream travel, I've seen a lot of National Parks. My favorites being Zion and Glacier National Parks. So I wasn't really expecting much from this national park only 3 hours away that everyone in Northern California goes to. But man-oh-man was it beautiful. The grandeur of those waterfalls and granite cliffs were awe-inspiring. I tried to soak in the beauty of it all, and it gave me a great feeling of peace.  But of course I tried to capture it on the iPhone as well. Here are some of my favorites:

We never actually went on serious hikes since Yosemite during Memorial Day weekend is like Disneyland during Memorial Day weekend: just lines and traffic. So PSA: don't go during 3-day weekends. The hoards of tourists will totally kill that nature loving vibe.

I also see why Apple decided to name their iOS systems after Yosemite and its landmarks though it really does Yosemite a disservice.  

And this was home for the weekend, I love my little Basecamp

As for what I wore all weekend: grana and everlane tees with lululemon leggings. What do you usually wear when camping?
