We've lived in California for more than 6 years now until this weekend hadn't made it to Yosemite Valley for a visit. This park is one of the most incredible natural wonders of the world, and we took full advantage of the weekend with refreshing hikes, amazing scenery, and food and accommodations at a world class lodge - the Ahwahnee.
