24 Hours in Yosemite

Probably one of the greatest vacations of my life was a trip I took up the coast of California in 2015. I started in Los Angeles and worked my way up Pacific Coast Highway, through Morro Bay, San Simeone, Big Sur, Monterrey, and San Francisco, saving the best for the last 24 hours of my trip: Yosemite National Park.

To say the beauty of Yosemite was stunning is an understatement. The valleys, mountains, rock formations, and forests all combined to make some of the most breathtaking scenery I have ever been lucky enough to witness.
