Our first full day in Yosemite will start by exploring Yosemite Valley, the heart of the park. We will stop by the visitor center to learn about the park and then take a stroll around Yosemite Village. Our picnic lunch will be at Swinging Bridge, along the Merced River. We will see Yosemite Falls, one of the most famous waterfalls in the park, and El Capitan, a famous granite cliff. We will also visit the Ansel Adams Gallery and see its current exhibition. In the late afternoon, we’ll return to our house for a snack, followed by dinner.

On day three, we will do some easy hikes in Yosemite Valley, such as Lower Yosemite Falls and Bridalveil Falls. Both falls should be raging during the spring snowmelt. After a picnic lunch, we will drive on the scenic Tioga Road to see Tuolumne Meadows, where we can chill out among the wildflowers, river, deer, and granite peaks surrounding the meadow.
