Wednesday Wanderings: Yosemite

I’m blessed to live just over an hour from the south entrance to the park. I’m less than two hours from Yosemite Valley. I’m blessed beyond measure to be able to spend time in Wawona, inside the park, but about an hour from the Valley. Wawona is beautiful, but less crowded than the Valley floor.

Historic Wawona Hotel (now called the Big Trees Lodge–do not get me started on that!)

We’ve been going to Wawona for family vacations and long weekends pretty regularly for the past … twenty-mumble years. It’s a place of memories, laughter, and fun. We’ve celebrated milestones. We’ve grieved and cried. We’ve rested and healed. Yosemite is very near to our hearts, Wawona even more.

 

In the coming weeks, we’ll spotlight different areas of the park and the surrounding area. We’ll talk history. We’ll go on photographic tours.

Is there anything specific you’d like to hear about the park and the area? Anything I can find out for you?

Here’s a picture of our favorite swimming hole, just to whet your appetite.
