California 2016: Yosemite, Day 9
The 9th day of our vacation was also the first full day we got to spend in Yosemite, which also happened to be Father’s Day, which also happened to be one of the few days that President Obama decided to spend in Yosemite as well. While I admit that it was cool that we were in the same area as the President at the very same time, we did have to change our plans a little, because Obama’s presence in the park meant that things were closed off at certain times and this was causing major wait times to get in and out of the places he was visiting. This all caused a slight change in plans but it all worked out.
We ended up visiting the Sequoia Grove and Tuolumne Meadows instead of our original plans. We did some hiking at both of these areas and got to see a huge tree that was carved out in the middle so that you could stand inside it. There were also some beautiful deer in the meadows we walked through.
The day is best told in pictures…
