This was a planned long weekend to stay in cabin and do Nevada Fall hike in Yosemite.
But this trip was as much about food as about nature. We planned well to have hearty meal after extensive calories burning hike.
All recipes and step-by-step instructions can be easily found on “Recipes” page if you click on the image.
But nothing prepared us for the nature twist.
Yosemite National Park is in California’s Sierra Nevada mountains. It’s one of the oldest, most preserved and visited parks in Northern California. It’s famed for its giant, ancient sequoia trees, and for Tunnel View, the iconic vista of towering Bridalveil Fall and the granite cliffs of El Capitan and Half Dome. It offers breathtaking views, extensive hikes for all levels and sits practically in our backyard, like 2 hours drive. Humans’ curious nature takes us far away to visit wonderful and exotic places and we never pay enough attention to the nearest by natural beauty.
We have not been in this park for about 2 years and it was a right time to come. Winter practically gone, mountains and meadows are emerald green and covered with multicolored flower rugs. Waterfalls finally woken up and the music of splashing water and hissing mist everywhere in the air.
We expected an amazing hike surrounded by musical thunder of waterfalls and spring blooming fields. But nature has a different plans. Although we started with a gray sky, nothing was prepared us for this.. Can you trust your own eyes?! In April?!
We were not defeated easily and continue to walk. Our determination was rewarded in 2 hours. What a difference…..
This was an amazing experience and after such an adventurous day we were not rewarded by sunshine and serenity, but hearted and fulfilling meal.
