Tuolumne Meadows: My favorite!
This was the day I was completely blown away by Yosemite! The park has some serious hidden gems! On our drive to Tuolumne Meadows we pulled over many times to enjoy the view.
One of the places we stopped was Tenaya Lake. I wish we would have known about this spot ahead of time bc it was not packed with people and it was beautiful! Like a natural resort!
We spent some time here and finally made our way into Tuolumne Meadows. This place literally took my breath away. We were at an elevation of over 9,000 feet that carried a crisp, cool wind. We explored here for several hours! The meadows were colorful and filled with various kinds of flowers, trees, grass, and critters.
In the distance, we witnessed a playful game of chase by a family of deer. It was the coolest thing. The meadows expanded throughout the mountains until your eyes could no longer see any further.
Aside from Yosemite being magnificent and beautiful, I think what makes it so beautiful is that it’s an untouched beauty and there are so many hidden treasures inside the park. Once you enter the park, it’s like you feel protected by the mountains because they surround you from every angle and and are so tall and Humongous! Then, once you think you have found the most beautiful spot, you discover another place just as breathtaking or even better. I appreciated my body so much during this trip and thankful that I was able to see such beauty created by a magnificent God.
