July Drive Vacation - Day 3

So, we are up to day 3... the day we are to return home...

We overnighted in Sonora in 110F heat. In the last two days, we have seen very few people traveling in the Sierra Nevadas. We try and catch a glimpse of Yosemite before we headed home.

We drove right up to the gate! There was no one there!!!

We rented a couple of bicycles and rode all over the valley floor...

We rode to Mirror Lake...

Yosemite Falls...

It was really beautiful! What a way to end the vacation! By the time we were ready to leave, the park was PACKED! It took a while to drive around the loop and out of Yosemite... Then 6 hours to home!

We had a great trip without the kids, but I really missed them...
Have a great week everyone!
