Let's go to Yosemite!


We decided to go to the Yosemite National Park by drive using the Labor Day's holiday plus one day off. It was big challenge for us, especially my daughter(two and half), because it was estimated about 12hours one way by car.

We left at 6:30 AM(Mountain Time) and arrived Curry Village at about 6 o'clock PM(Pacific Time) . Except the rest time, it was almost less than 11hours drive and not so hard for me.

This is Typical Road sight in NEVADA. There was nothing but wilderness and mountains.

Brunch in McDermitt which on the border between OREGON and NEVADA. It was a little surprise for us that every city in NEVADA has CASINO. Yes, NEVADA is the state which has LAS VEGAS!

Just a little after entering CALIFORNIA, we could arrive the enterance of Yosemite.

The first impression of Yosemite was there were much verdure. Maybe we got used to the scenic of Idaho, it is a kind of desert you know.

This is the sight from Tioga Road in Yosemite.

View from Curry Village. Curry Village is located in the Yosemite Valley, and its view was a kind of spectacle because it was between steep rock mountains.

We could go to bed early, and sleep well.

12時間程度の運転なら、大して苦にならない事がわかりました。遠征釣行可能かも(笑)。名前の由来、調べてみます。
