Yosemite in fall

The winds will blow their own freshness into you, and the storms their energy, while cares will drop off like autumn leaves.

-John Muir

I have a big goal on the education of my children in this complicated world and is not only teaching them good manners. (I did it a couple of years ago ;) I want to keep them inspired and teach them not to be afraid of the unknown.

In fact, life always leads you to explore the unknown.

I want to be an example with my life to my children. I do not consider myself as a person already realized and I try to explore new ways to live my life. My passion for hiking and climbing the mountains helps me so much in this.

I spent 3 days in Yosemite National Park with my kids, hiking and exploring on the paths of John Muir. Sometimes during hikes, I push my children to go beyond what they believe their limits are. During these three days we tried to listen to the sound of the nature, to observe the beautiful autumn colors at Yosemite National Park, to explore new paths and meet animals.

The adventure

We left Bay area early on Wednesday morning, there are about 4 hours to get to Yosemite.

This was a great opportunity to see the Yosemite with autumn colors before everything is covered with white snow. We will come back in winter!

We spent a lot of time in Yosemite Valley, there are so much things to do and to see! There are some of the unique animals you may see while hiking in the park. We saw Deer, coyotes, squirrels, birds...

On the second day, the valley was covered by the clouds and I chose to go to Glacier Point side to make a hike:Sentinel Dome. In this hike you can enjoy a stunning 360 degree views (El Capitan, Half Dome, Yosemite Falls). It's a quick hike, a must to do before to go at Glacier Point.

Before to come back home we visited Bridalveil Falls, and Tunnel view that provides one of the most famous views of Yosemite Valley.

What you need to Know:

Yosemite Falls is often dry in fall, it resumes flowing after a little snowfall.

There was still a little of water in Lower Yosemite Falls. Bridalveil Falls, run all year; however, their flow slows to a trickle by fall.

Cell phones don't work in the park ;)
