Our road trip is in full swing and we are halfway through our journey across Southwestern USA. We have been to San Francisco where we stayed for four days and then moved inland to Yosemite National Park. I want to keep most of the sights hidden for now, since our big travel series will be up once I come home, but I also didn't want to go cold turkey here. That's why I decided to share some images from our drive through the Sierra mountain range.
As soon as you depart San Francisco, and head east on Route 120 sights will start to change. Gone is the ever so lovely Pacific Ocean and bare lands start to show their heads. Of course they go away quickly once the climb into the mountains begins.
Yosemite National Park is deffinitly a place worth seeing. We only made a day stop here, but in order to truly appreciate the beauty you have to stay longer.
We are all drivers so road tripping is not too hard.
But it's not only the popular Yosemite Valley that is worth a stop. Many sights along the way leave you gasping at the beauty of nature. Luckily there are frequent stops on the side of the road so you can get to them quickly and then move on.
Our day ended with a sunset over the Sierra Mountain range as we drove into Mammoth Lakes, which was our stay for the night.
As I'm typing this we are in Las Vegas, a complete turn from the sights just a day ago. But that's what our whole experience here has been like so far. I try to stop as much as I can and take it all in.
