Driving through the national park we were surrounded by thousands of trees that looked like they never ended in every direction. Deposits of snow and ice on the side of the road signalled that we were getting closer. We pulled over to a visitor look out and there I saw the real life version of the my Macbook's desktop background. There it was with the sun shining right on it; El Capitan, Half Dome and the other rock formations, all of which seemed too good to be real. I'd never seen anything like it before.
During our couple of days in Yosemite National Park we did a couple of the easy walking trails (however I still managed to fall). My Nike free runs were not well equipped for the environment at all, lets just say I would have broken a hip if I had been a couple of decades older.
One of my favourite sights was Mirror Lake. Once you see the lake you realise how literal its name is. The lake captures amazing reflections of the rocks, trees and sky and is surrounded by more trees and rocks and also never-ending beautiful white snow.
Whenever people ask me what was my favourite place that we visited in the US, my response always includes Yosemite. It was nothing like I'd ever seen, including the deers!!
I'd definitely recommend venturing out of the big cities while travelling in the US and visiting a few of their national parks. I never though I would be so enthused by nature, but the beauty of these sights were unforgettable.
