June 10, 2015: Yosemite + Sequoia

The final day of our U.S. road trip! We were planning to spend some more time in both Yosemite and Sequoia, but it was raining, hailing and cold and we decided that a few extra days in Irvine cleaning up the car and unpacking/repacking wouldn’t hurt.

Anyway, we made the best of our last day, despite the weather – We hiked to waterfalls, played on rocks, visited the Generals, burrowed in trees… you know, pretty much your average Wednesday.

Miles walked/hiked:        4.5
Miles driven:                   632

Yosemite National Park
