|We had a nice drive south through gold country to our hostel near Yosemite valley. We were staying in a Yosemite style fixed tent, which is basically a tarp stretched over a wooden frame. The hostel was really good, even with a songwriters retreat happening the first night. Kum bah ya!
We had 3 days walking in Yosemite, the best walks were the 4 mile trail (which is actually 4.7) to Glacier Point, very steep climb with amazing views of the valley, Yosemite Falls and Half Dome, and the Cathedral Lakes trail in Tulume Meadows.
The last night in the hostel we treated ourselves to a steak dinner and a bottle of red, ideal.
