One of my adventures this summer was visiting Yosemite. Visiting this year is an interesting experience. One must have a reservation to enter the park, and only a certain number can enter per day. This means that the park is far less crowded than usual--especially the parts that are away from Yosemite Valley. I booked a reservation and entered on 7/21. I took a hike to the relatively remote Upper Cathedral Lake, and was greeted by a stunning sunset that evening. It was so worth it!
