Day -5   Lake Tahoe - Yosemite National Park    Day-2
26 - June - 2015
Globus
Leave the shores of Lake Tahoe and travel to one of the first wilderness parks in the United States - YOSEMITE NATIONAL PARK. The park is best known for its waterfalls, but within its nearly 3,100 square kilometres you can also find deep valleys, grand meadows, ancient sequoias, and much more. This afternoon, enjoy a VALLEY FLOOR TOUR that highlights the wonders of this incredible park. (B)
Today we drove to Yosemite via a few stops. Pleasant scenery.  The mountains are always interesting as you just don't get them that high in Australia.  We had to rush to catch the Yosemite tour bus as our group had a pre-booked time slot, but fortunately things were not quite to schedule.  The tour was very good and quite worthwhile.  It stopped along the way at all the usual tourist stops so you could take the photos you wanted.  One thing the guide said he had never seen, and neither had we, was a 'sun dog'.  I'm not sure this is the technically correct term, but it was a lovely rainbow in a cloud above El Capitan.  After the tour we went for a walk along the Lower Yosemite Falls trail and beyound passing through some beautiful scenery.  Then it was off to the hotel for dinner.
