"And start scrolling through social media or these days reading panic inducing headlines it's understandable but as our worlds have been shrunk down and many cases to the size of our homes or apartments. We can use some of this time. Confetti for dreaming bigger dreams a great way to do that. Take a daily virtual vacation. Start keeping a list of places you'd like to visit. Maybe you created a list of one hundred dreams that really long bucket list. We talked about in a previous episode. Or you can get a book such as national geographic's journeys of a lifetime or one thousand places to see before you die. Start working through these lists search for photos online of the places he want to see. There are plenty of great photo sites but even just searching on instagram with the hashtag eiffel tower. We'll give you all sorts of angles on the place read through luxury hotel descriptions and reviews with a virtual vacation. It doesn't matter if you can't actually afford it. Look at photos of those first class cabins for international flights. Pretty swanky and a great diversion from headlines as you get into the habit of taking daily virtual vacations you'll start seeing new ways to engage in these journeys. Lots of art museums have photos of their major works online. You could visit the pro virtually and studying new painting each day. Major zoos and aquariums are posting videos of animal feedings. And the like you can sort through photos and videos of national parks reading through travel blogs or travel narratives and be fun as well when you do. These daily virtual vacations take notes on. What looks really cool. Because some of these trips will be doable. When life goes back to normal spend two weeks taking a daily virtual vacation to different sites in yosemite national park for instance. And you'll figure out ni- tannery that will work when you do visit in another year or two you'll be ahead of the game on travel planning and you'll also build some anticipation into your life. And that's a good thing because one of the hard parts of all this social distancing has been seeing fund trips cancelled and not knowing when will be able to plan fun stuff in the future. This uncertainty makes it hard to anticipate the fun to come and honestly anticipating good stuff is a big chunk of what keeps humans going but nothing lasts forever and you can certainly dream up a twenty twenty one vacation plan and as you look at those soaring mountain vistas. This just might make another day cooped up in your house. Feel a little better in the meantime this is laura. Thanks for listening. And here's to making the most of our time.

"You wanna be a part of the program We followed the story yesterday linda. I don't know if you saw last night's tv show didn't ask you. We had this young woman who's missing from long island gabby petito and the boyfriend won't won't won't cooperate the father. The mother stepmother stepfather all my show last night. I'm just i guess. I'm assuming they were divorced. But the fact everyone all four of them on the same page. Where is this girl. He won't and when did you last. When did you last see her. I saw this segment. I thought he did a really good job. That was not an easy interview at all. I don't like doing these interviews. You know me for seventeen years. I don't like doing these interviews. Because i know how hard this is. It's it's not just. I don't think anybody understands how difficult it is to talk to somebody. When they're in. That dark of a moment. I just cannot believe shoes last seen august. Twenty fourth at a salt lake city hotel of final call to her family was from a national park in wyoming and then all of a sudden he shows up you know august. Thirtieth got a text from her phone apparently from yosemite. I don't know if they've been able to ping that. I assume they ping that by now. It's her van. He shows up home on september. First in north port. Florida with the with her van. And you know. The parents file a missing persons report. Violent where the hell is. She and this boyfriend won't won't talk to them. I just can't believe it. I really can't and very very sad. And i think what we saw. Last night was people who have even though they've decided to live there. Very different lives separately. They came together because their child is missing. And still nothing from this guy. Absolutely nothing you know now. there are. Protesters apparently gathered around they skies home and carrying signs urging him to speak to the police and i guess he's just decided he's i guess hired a lawyer and won't land spoken out. That's what i don't understand like if you to cooperate with the family was a lawyer. If you have nothing to hide why would you. Why would you do this. And i'll be honest even if you did can you not i. I don't know i. I have a hard time understanding. Solis nece here. That that is heartless sentence cruel that is that is cold. That is just it is. It's the lowest point of humanity when you can. It's it's really sad. Because i was thinking earlier you were talking to scott wagner and mentioned and even when you talk to to dr jackson and you know we've got nine and ten year olds being beheaded pregnant women being killed in street..

"I'm going i know me i'll get to sit there and i'm going. I don't ever don't ever complain about your job when you have an entire afternoon free to watch looney tunes on me you know i know. Sometimes you feel bad that you're not a grown up like the other guys but if you're the president of a bank or like an orthopedic surgeon you'd be spending their after watching you seventy lori and here's the thing. My wife is so Annoyed with me. As i've i've stopped doing it a lot more watching cable news because i get so ticked off and she'll say oh my god you're gonna make yourself sick. Your blood pressure is going gonna go up. Don't what if she came in and watch her husband watching yosemite sam foghorn leghorn or or any of the characters or maybe. Even you get lucky. Marvin the martian which is very rare one I think she'd rather see me doing that than watching cable news. But it's such a he. No it's such a like yes she'd rather see you watching yosemite sam then cable news but i bet if you had asked her you know when she was like sixteen. Hey do you want to grow up to be married to a man whose home watching cartoons in the middle of the day. I would have said no. Don't make me feel badly about it. You're supposed to build me up. This is a great idea. That's right this is so much better. That cable news so much. Better thank you okay. It's it's bob and sheri now. Let's open up. The bob and sheri archive balked just joining us. My husband and i were having disagreement in which we both felt that the other person was the criminal and i left the house and a fuming blaze of glory. Drop my daughter off at work only to have my car drop stone dead on me out of nowhere. Now why. I am in the parking lot. And i'm like why would the car which has a new battery in it. By the way. Why would the car just die out of nowhere. What am i bob. Now that these things are going to happen to me. That's what i felt like really. I did actually said to my why am i. Li- bob am i a human emoji for disaster. Is this not disaster. No come up. Yeah irritation. You know we have listeners. Who call up. And say. I had bob him like i. I had somebody When i was at a party. And somebody said bob moment. The prison was listener. And all this this bob movement. It's not just that it's suffering. It's not it's not disaster. A bob moment is this. it's unfair. It's unfair and you are outraged. And then the outcome slaps you in the face that you demand that the bartender. Empty your pockets and oh you had the card all along. Oh the last time. I was in maine. I had people coming over to my table. Who were listeners in In bangor and they said as anybody said why are you not fighting al-qaeda such as like seven or hezbollah seven years ago. A woman just stopped me on the streets. I just the soon that. Because when i said to my car the starship dancer size. What am i bob. I just assumed that. You're so used to be bob that just you aren't as bothered by it anymore. I've still bothered by it. Believe me it is interesting. When i see other people have bob moments like my wife had one at dinner. The other night we were at rennes. It's a new restaurant and they just don't have it together. first of all. They're not allowed to serve liquor on sunday. They didn't have a full license or something. So you know my friend. I don't know. I haven't heard of it either and mary ordered The tuna because she doesn't like pasta my go italian restaurant. Mary hates just won't eat pasta. And so the The tuna came tuna on vegetables or something and she said. It tasted like a burnt brick. So the waiter comes around. And he's got the italian accent and the whole thing. Is everybody enjoying it. And she said. It tasted like a burnt brick. Such a bob thing to say was and couldn't believe that she says how you know. When you're saying a bob thing. When there's no warm-up us throw it across the plate is hard and fast as you can without any warm up of the blue. You don't say actually I my dishes overcooked. No you come out with. It tastes like a burnt brick. And you know where. I got that my father. No that's like the daiwa was with him in the men's clothing star us looking for its high and the guy said. Can i help you looked at the guys. Tien said based on what you're wearing. I prefer to shop alone dead while away. What am you can hear. More bob and sheri archives at bob and sheri dot com sharable taste of this. Show the fun size. Podcast drops every thursday on the three body. Okay it's time now for bob and sheri what's the guy got to do. This is Based on rancor which is a website where you go and obviously you rank something it could be. The best singer in your opinion could be the best movie of nineteen ninety nine all sorts of ranking things and one of them is weird history so this one is about heroes. Are they truly heroes. So you have to put yourself in the place of the guy that i'm talking about. You have to pretend that you are dutch because this guy was dutch and then at the end of the story i will tell you how many people thought that he was a heroin rancor and how many said this is not a hero so his name is john van speech and he was raised in amsterdam's public orphanage in the early eighteen hundreds at eighteen ben speech at joined the royal netherlands navy and he served in the dutch east indies while there he earned the nickname terror of the bandits for his fierce fierce defense of dutch claims in eighteen.

Buffleheads Are Highly Reliant on Northern Flickers – Here’s Why

"Some koufax i found about the buffalo head is they're highly. Reliant on northern flickers northern flickers are really species. Yeah and they're highly reliant on their nesting. Cavities we have them here. We have northern flickers here. There's actually a pair not too far from where i live In one of the trees. But i think the tail feathers and the wing feathers are different. Color yeah on the flickers here than the flickers where you are out west. You guys have read shafted northern flickers and out here we have golden shaft. northern flickers When i i Went out west for the first time in like you know into yosemite did all those national parks i remember seeing a northern flicker and it had the red red shafts on the bottom of wings and the tail and i had no idea what kind of bird it was like. Oh my god the things huge and it's all red like and then i realized. Oh it's a northern flickers. She's you know colored different. I kind of forgot that fact. But apparently there there's northern flicker nesting. Cavities are like just the right size for the buffalo head. They're like just big enough for them. To nest in and buffalo heads are like on the smaller side for cavity nesting ducks other ducks like the wood. Duck that nest in old woodpecker. Cavities and stuff. So the buffets are like jih small enough to fit in and so that helps them You know Not get out competed by by bigger nesting ducks so they're really relying on those northern flickers.

Then the grand canyon had a train to start treating for the grand canyon But misplace. I felt pretty good spat with strength training. Three times a week And you set up with gradually increasing longer aches hikes and you know specific distances. We had to hinch elevation gains. We had to hitch A lot of the. I did supplement my strength training with some of your exercises more around the pre stuff that mobility work which i think is super helpful because of the impact and being on your feet so much Was super helpful You know the max hike that we did we had on our schedule was fifteen. Miles was a target and three thousand feet of elevation so in minnesota at natch Which we did is we started. Actually are training going to highland hills in bloomington and just going up and down. The ski hills and that is my ground zero through other hikers. Were training for other an epic events. We bumped into someone there who had done half dome sober. He was trained in for sunday.

The Importance of Photography Workshops

"I've been an advocate of attending a photographic workshop. For as long as i can remember. Maybe because i had such terrific experiences in workshops but i also think that they offer quite a bit that simply cannot be replicated with youtube videos and online instruction and etc part of that is of course the ability to just hang out with your peers with people who were as dedicated about photography's you are with instructors but i think when it gets right down to it one of the most valuable things that happens in a workshop are the unexpected questions that you develop once you're there and here's an example in one of the very first workshops that i ever did. I went to yosemite for a workshop. That was being taught by bruce. Birnbaum john sexton and ray mix savvy as part of the owens valley photography workshops. I went because i wanted some honest feedback in my work. I'd spent months preparing stack of prince toned. Spotted matted to the very best of my abilities and i was kind of looking for some sort of assessment where i was in the photographic process. That was my reason for going and ended up being the least important thing that i gathered from that workshop. The most important thing came in the form of a field session now feel sessions are not often the most productive thing that happens in a photographic workshop. Because you don't go to a workshop to make photograph you go to a workshop to learn something but nonetheless. It seems like every photographic workshop includes field sessions and in this field session. We were at a particular location that had a small creek and we were all supposed to find a photograph compose it set up our cameras etc and then the instructors were gonna come around and look through our camera an offer some comments about what we had seen in composed. I found my subjects set up. My view camera made my composition and not long afterwards. Bruce birnbaum came up as the first of the instructors. Who's going to take a look at my field composition. He didn't even look through the camera. He didn't look at viewfinder. he didn't do anything he walked up and he said why. Have you composed this image. Certainly an innocent enough question but one that really got me thinking. He didn't wanna know how i was going to expose it or what. My thinking was relative to you. Know rule of thirds or anything like that. He didn't question my bangel in position. He asked

Not everybody knows that Hetch Hetchy before the reservoir was filled. There was kind of a second Yosemite Valley and that the scenery up there is really beautiful. And I was telling you before we started. I have never been up there.

You put a really important thing in here, it says get there early as parking is limited. Yes, There's a lot of people that have not been to have touched you. And it is still in Yosemite National Park. Um, it's it's the least we have the least crowded half of Yosemite in our area. And head catchy actually provides the drinking water for San Francisco. So it's a reservoir and way back when they built the ocean on a medium and you can go out there and walk across the dam, and there's signage and photos of How they brought in all the equipment to build this this little masterpiece If you will out there in basically the middle of nowhere at that time, it's pretty incredible. And I also like what you said to you about had help you. It was often referred to as the Twin Valley T 70 because when you look at it There's a lot of similarities between had heavy, especially before it was jammed and many Valley it's a wonderful place is a learning experience.

"Stacey heiress went missing around these sunrise high Sierra camp in Yosemite National Park and Joe. Yosemite is. We've talked about Yosemite in a past episode, and this is by far probably number one on my list of national parks right now to visit. yeah, I tell you mine, too. Yeah and I think I if I don't know if you're coming with or not this August. But we're still planning to head out there for kind of a hike and then a little party that weekend. I'll be there for the weekend part for sure yeah I have to see if I can make it for the hike before the party weekend okay. Well, the party. The Party is obviously you don't WanNa miss that, but the hiking will be a lot of fun, too. I think we're GONNA. Try to hike the chains on half dome. I believe it was episode five another gentleman by the name Michael Allen. Fishery went missing in Yosemite. National Park's. If you haven't already listened to that episode, I would listen to that one to once. You've done with this. But Yosemite is in California and it's A. It's a pretty old park. It was established on October. First eighteen ninety and it's it's big. It's over seven, hundred, forty, seven thousand acres, or one point one million square miles, which if you can think about that, it's about five times larger than Chicago. So it's a, it's A. It's a massive park. Yeah, it's huge. And it sees a ton of visitors every year, so the the average about four million people year so. And three fourths of all those visitors happened in kind of the same time period, so you're talking. You. You know you're June July August timeframe so it. It's a really busy park. But thankfully it's a big park, so there's a ton of places to hike. Some cool facts about Yosemite. It is home to one of the tallest waterfalls in the world at over two thousand, four, hundred twenty five feet. Yosemite falls. Is it is the tallest on the planet, so definitely something I. I hope to see if we get out to Yosemite this summer. Is that the one that is like? You can see the fire fall where like the light hits at certain away, and it looks like it's like lava pouring over the edge. Yeah, they call them. Moon Beause. Moon bows okay. Yeah, well I Know there's there's the rainbows at night. 'cause we talked about that the other episode as a fun fact, but I thought there was one called fire fall to. The Sun setting hits it just right, and it looks like lava I think you're right and I think. There are several waterfalls in the park that have these amazing rainbows that you can witness during the day at sunset, or even at night the moon bows so I'm excited to possibly see a moon Bo as well. So I you're seventy park was the first area of land set aside by the US government for preservation protections, so that's a cool little fact. The giant there's also giant sequoia trees that live in the park, and they can live up to three thousand years old, which is pretty unbelievable that you have trees there. That are. Three thousand years old just imagine what has happened throughout history and that three thousand years in the afternoon. I was real tiny. How the same tree! Yeah this is crazy to think about. Famous writer, a lot of you probably know of John. Muir was a naturalist and the founder of the Sierra Club. He was so taken with Yosemite that he headed up effort for its preservation, and his efforts led to the parks establishment in eighteen ninety and in nineteen. Oh, three President! Theodore Roosevelt toured Yosemite with mirror in nineteen, zero six. The park came under the federal government's control. So John Muir had a very influential role in. Getting, this park set up and preserved so. It's pretty cool and obviously theater as Roosevelt and I think Joe that that's one of your favorite presidents is if now? He started the park service basically yeah, so a pretty cool history of the park. Little in depth information on its climate Yosemite is has what people call a Mediterranean climate meaning. Most of the precipitation falls during the mild winter. And the other seasons are nearly dry less than three percent of the precipitation falls during the long hot summers so. It's definitely a park. If you're going hiking in the summer, you're GONNA WANNA. Make sure you either have a lot of water with you or you've got Kinda map marked with all the spots. You can fill up because that's just need for hiking, too. Because realize just makes it so much more difficult when you're camping. Yeah, especially for people like us where we have to travel sometimes across the country to go hiking you you there for one week and you kind of play. The the weather lottery hoping. Yeah, remember I. Mean You remember trip to our first trip to glacier? was just a rainy sued. The whole time, and it was still really cool hiking trip, but it just makes miserable. Yeah, so yeah, like I said. The climate is pretty hot and dry in the popular times that people go hiking so. Know bring a Lotta water or you know have a map with where you can fill up a on your hike. Which I think is pretty easy. There's a ton of little lakes throughout the park so. that should really be a an issue. Terrain, it's it's very mountainous and rocky. There's a lot of granite slabs. You can hike on a lot of crevasses. You can fall in. so it's some of the trails can get pretty pretty tough if you're inexperienced or not prepared so especially like I mentioned earlier the. the chain the chains on half dome. If anyone's into hiking and you don't know what that is after this episode, go to Google and look it up it. It looks terrifying and amazing at the same time. Yeah, they're very dangerous. girl died on it a few months ago. Correct, she slid off. Yeah, the problem is people. Try to hike it when it gets wet and it's just a big slab of granite, and it's not supposed to do that. It gets slippery and I've read articles about people trying to do it in sandals, and you know a lot of these accidents while really unfortunate, it's sometimes because the people don't prepare. That's I think most of the accidents we talk about. That are solvable. Are Result of unprepared, not knowing the climate. Not knowing what gear you need, not knowing what you're doing. We're not even knowing the weather forecast for today. I can tell you one hundred percent if I'm going to hike that the chain hike and there's. A chance of rain in the afternoon. I probably won't do it. Might hike up to the base of it just to see it. Through the dangerous part, yeah, and it gets really CDs pictures. It gets backed up I mean it reminds me of the backups. On Everest just tons of people going up and down, and then you've got people that chain in every link which you're not really supposed to do. And it it slows. It slows everyone down and you really just got it. You Pat Kinda light you know where some hiking boots have good traction on the bottom and you know. Don't go when there's a chance of rain. I think you'd be fine and leave early. You want to beat the crowd Sir Yeah. Hundred percent agree. Yeah, so it looks like a really cool hike, and there's a ton of other really cool hikes in the park. I think there's over. I'll get into it, but yeah, there's over eight hundred miles of trades that you can hike, so you can spend a whole year. Hike in the park. types of dangers in regards to animals. There's black bears. bighorn sheep mountain lions mule deer. Those are kind of the big. The big animals in the park nothing I would be too concerned about you know mountain lions. We've said in past episodes. If you have little children, just keep an eye on them. Don't let them. Out of your sight. In the park, black bears are not going to. Probably attack people unless they're provoked. or You come across a bear with their the cubs. Yeah and I haven't really read too many reports of people getting injured by or killed by animals in the park so I think. You know if you take precautions, you'll be fine. like I, said the train. It's wooded.

We lost every single tour group and school group that we had coming up here. Yosemite is opening with a lot of restrictions. Only about half of the average June visitors are allowed in, and they must make online reservation for each car in advance, Jamie Richards Yosemite spokesperson. We're going to be monitoring condition daily. We're GONNA make adjustments as needed and we're going to work to maintain safe conditions for visitors. Only two campgrounds are open in the larger one. One is operating at just fifty percent of capacity. Other campsites are closed due to staffing Richard says she's interested in seeing how the animals in the park respond again the people we've seen a lot of bears out in active we will see when the park reopens. How the animals continue to reopen adapt to visitors coming back last year, visitors spent more than one point seven billion dollars in the four California counties that surround the Park Brooke.

Opr correspondent remedy Bergelin reports from Yosemite. Remmy thanks for joining us. My pleasure rummy tell us what led to the sudden shutdown well Park Ranger Derek. Osmond was on his morning rounds near Yosemite hogged in Metro region. When the incident occurred here he is describing exactly what he saw in his own words bell. My God what kind of bear a really big bail we see a lot of wildlife out here chipmunks squirrels turtles but a real life bear. This poses a huge threat to the other animals and their habitats. I'm sure they're all scared shitless just like the rest of us who scary remmy. What steps are park officials taking to deal with this emergency? We'll orders came down immediately from the NPS to evacuate the entire park. All Campers and hikers been escorted to the exits and those located in more remote locations were airlifted out by helicopter. Every road into and out of the park has since been blocked off and animal control has just arrived and how our guests reacting to the news for the most part. They seem very understanding of the severity of the problem. And the need to cut the visit short. I spoke with a few. And here's what they had to say. I think closing the park is definitely the right thing to do. I mean what if there's more than one Barron there? I'm never coming back here. I don't care that the bear was spotted fifty miles away from here. My family and I could have died with my own. The beast was big as a tank with a coat is black as death. It's for matted.

Authorities are having trouble convincing a team to even go into the woods to look for it and frankly I can't blame them. You'd have to be fucking crazy to sign a death. Wish like that right so it seems that Yosemite could be closed for quite some time. What will the National Park Service do? If they can't drive down the bear if attempts to find tranquilize the Animal Fail. Officials are prepared to smoke the bear out by setting the parks tire. Eleven hundred square miles on fire.

"This during your trip It's actually a loop so the road comes in and it does a loop up that goes around and then comes back out. It's thirteen miles in total. There's a few different ways you can do this loop so you're not really going to be able to loop loop it with your RV if you're camping the campground that's fine and you have some other option so you don't need to drive your rv around but you don't want to have to take your RV honest Lupin expect to be able to park and find places to stop and be able to pull it in. Just it's too tight. There's not that many parking spots as it is so don't plan on using senior. RV To do this loop There's other options so there's really three other options One you could bike this. It is only thirteen miles so you know. Our kids are definitely not doing a thirteen mile bike ride but I think for some adults. That wouldn't be too bad and you'd easily be able to stop them and see everything that you want to see and do hikes or whatever it is that you want to do so biking's a nice option second is you can't take personal vehicle as long as it's off season and there's parking if it's the heat of the summer good luck trying to find parking. This is one of the busiest parks. It's in the top ten. I think it's about five million visitors a year and the the summer months are extremely busy so I don't think that a personal vehicle is a great option. If you're there during the summer we were able to use a personal vehicle cold but again we were there in shoulder season really in late fall before the winter weather really came in and Limited a bunch of the access so so personal vehicle you could use but Other than just getting to one spot and then parking your personal vehicle like in the downtown town like the Yosemite village parking you could maybe park your personal vehicle and then take the shuttle system throughout. So that's the third option is the shuttle system so the shuttle. The system in the winter months kind of fall off season goes year round throughout the village area. So you have kind of the lodge and you have the ansel Adams Gallery. There's the museum that's over there. There's the Conservation Center and and then it goes over to where the campgrounds are at. And so that's kind of like the upper pines and lower pines so the whole half Dome village I think is what they call it. where the campsites and stuff are at so year round the shuttle will do that loop and then in the summer months? It also does a larger loop where it'll take you Out By el Capitan and then over to The kind of Cathedral beach area. So that gets you a little bit closer. To where bridal veil falls falls is so those are your three options you can take personal vehicle but probably only on offseason or just park in the main parking areas and then the shuttle's tells the main way that you're getting around the area or biking if you WANNA bike it I guess you could walk to but thirteen miles is a lot of walking so especially if you WANNA do hikes when you get to different replaces. So that's your options for getting around now in terms of what you WANNA see you're driving around. We actually did a little detours. We were first coming in and instead going straight into the village We went and did the little bit of a a shot to the right. That'll take you to the bridal veil falls visitors area where you can park and there's not actually a visitor's center here but there's a parking lot it's not a very large parking lot and you can't back up Here with a total anything and you won't be able to fit in. RV LARGE RV and here anyway so we were in the jeep. But it's a really nice short hike. It's super easy for kids. I don't know exactly but it couldn't be more than a quarter of a mile to get to the base of the falls and then there's a bunch of boulders and rocks and stuff that are down there they don't actually want you hiking on that to try to get closer to the falls so you're really just seen it from the area where they have like a concrete path space that they want you to see it but it's a really cool waterfall to see it's six hundred and twenty feet so this is a huge waterfall and we were there like I said in late fall so the last week of October Ober and at that point in time Yosemite falls is not flowing anymore. Just doesn't have enough water but bridal veil falls was still going so it was really cool to be able to see a waterfall and this was the waterfall that we were able to see. So then as you get back onto the loop and keep heading into the valley you'll come across Al Capitan. which will be on your left? This this is the huge thirty five hundred foot vertical granite wall that just juts out of the ground in and heads up and I if as if that wasn't cool enough to see you usually can see climbers that are on the mountain. If you haven't seen the movie free Solo you definitely want to check that out ahead of time. It's actually a documentary about a professional rock climber. Alex who is The first person ever to free solo climb meaning. He's not using using any ropes or anything to climb El Capitan. So just insane. I think it's amazing. The people that are climbing it with ropes. I mean that's spectacular tacklers. Well and what's really cool is you can see these people on their Either climbing or we were seeing people towards a nighttime or towards the the evening and so they had their little like hammock. Things set up on the sides of the mountain. Because they're going to sleep there that night and then continue climbing up the next day so really cool to see if as if the nature wasn't cool enough on its own. Seeing the climbers was really need as well and I'm pretty sure free. Solo is free right now on Amazon is on prime. Video are yeah through Amazon Prime Video. I remember seeing it somewhere. Free might have been Netflix. But check that out because it will get you excited for the trip in. It'll just make an awe of these people people that are doing these climbs. So that's Al Capitan. As You keep heading forward you can't see half dome in the distance You'd have to drive drive up further up by like the half dome parking and then hike up if you wanted to get closer to that area. We only went as far as the Yosemite Valley parking lot and we parked there And then went around the little village so the village that they have Is Really Cool. I mean they have a bunch of stuff there post office there they also have Some different in places where you can get a bite to eat. They have a Park Ranger Station area visitor center where you can talk with Park Rangers and get recommendations on Hikes and stuff get the junior ranger packets. There's a big interactive area and then there's kind of like Native American specialist area where they have they have a whole all kind of village area. Setup shows you what some of the housing would have been like. There's usually somebody there to answer questions about things. There happened to be a basket display. That was going on while while we were there So we were able to see that and enjoy that. There's also that's the Indian cultural exhibit sand that's correct term so so Really cool to see. There's a lot of different programs that are happening. We actually did not make time to go on. One of the ranger led hikes. But they allow the kids or at least offseason to go through the Indian cultural exhibit. And then meet with the interpretive specialist. They had there and answer different questions and go through. Things is to work on their junior ranger packets so that was a nice feature so then as we kept drive in the loop to head out of there we stopped kind of meadows area at the base by Yosemite falls calls. It's while it's not super close Yosemite falls but you can hike over to where the base of Yosemite falls is at and you could continue hiking up as well We in little kids so we weren't doing any major major hikes but it's just nice to get out your legs and go see that really beautiful and of course you alphabetize not too far in the distance We kept driving then and stopped for while at El Capitan and saw that around the base of it. And that's where really where we could see a bunch of the climbers that were up on the mountain and then we continued up to tunnel view. So this is going towards WANNA so this is heading up until forty one and you can stop there before the tunnel and park your car. There's a small parking not at probably only holds like Twenty cars or so so it's really not very large but In the off season we were fine getting a parking spot. I think it's really worth it to try to be able to stop here and be able to see tunnel view and and get that view of the valley so it's really worth trying to make that work. We were actually there and it was almost sunset so it was was starting to get dark and it meant that the valley was starting to get those pinks purples to it and Like I mentioned before you're able to see kept on half dome and bridal veil falls all the same shot so that was really neat and what we ended up doing is we turn the jeep around and parked on the parking lot. That's it's on the south side of the road. There were fewer people there and then you can easily get onto a small path. Nobody else was on this hike. We only had to go up. Maybe maybe maybe a mile at the most but I think it was even less than a mile to a place called inspiration point and this is actually one of the spots. Were ansel ansel Adams. Has this great shot of the Yosemite Valley so if you want that view that you get from tunnel view You can see that at tunnel view but if you want a nice hike. That isn't isn't terribly difficult. There is a bit of an allegation gain. But it's not that long and you can hike up to inspiration point and really see that same view you that he saw and there's probably going to be nobody around you so this is one hike that I think is a really good one to see because it was the only one that we were able to do where we didn't have other people next to us so within at least the valley so Really a cool hike and a great way to see that beautiful landscape and and Really feel like you're connected with the people that had been there before us so NEAT place to stop and see and when we come back. We're GONNA talk about camping for the park.

"Homeschool podcast where we make travel educational and fun. Grab your shades to do some California dreaming as we head to Yosemite Semisi National Park Thank you for listening to the RB. Homeschool podcast I'm your host amber. Stephen we are a family family of four with two elementary age daughters that travel the US and Canada in our Jaco. Seneca so we have a big rig we tow a jeep behind us and we love traveling to the national parks. Were actually trying to bring our girls to all of the national parks before they head off to college And since they're only seven and eight. We have a little bit of time to get that done. We love reporting about the different tips and tricks that we learned from our travels and so hopefully by bringing that to you. It can make your travels much easier so today we are talking about Yosemite National Park. There's so many wonderful things about Yosemite National Park That you're going to to love John Muir said this of the Sierra Nevada's which is the mountain range where it's at what he described the Sierras as clean pure and full of divine bovine lessons which is an excellent way to describe it Yosemite Valley and the Mariposa Grove are also one of the first areas that were protected affected by the federal government for the enjoyment of the people and this actually happened back in eighteen sixty four with the semi grant which was signed into power by Abraham Him Lincoln so this area has actually been protected for a very long time. It's of course not the first national park technically that yellowstone but it still was was one of the first that was protected in terms of a government protected area. That's meant for everyone to enjoy and kept for many years for people to enjoy so that is really cool as well and Yosemite was the place that really I think. Motivated President Theodore Roosevelt to put in place all the protections and the and the laws antiquity act in order to protect federal areas and national parks and kind of make all of that reality galaxy and that was part of a camping trip where he came out to meet with John Muir after reading some of his writings about Yosemite area and the different areas down there and you went out for this four day camping trip and Legend has it. He ditched his Secret Service or protection at the time and just headed with Moore and they camped out under the stars and he loved up to the area he got to see where the groves were they went down into the Mariposa Grove. He got to see where the demolishing of some of that was happening with the redwoods being cut down and This acquaint being cut down so it really was a motivating time for him then to come back and put some different protections into place he also also made Yosemite an official national park at that time too so that was something that Roosevelt actually did. So there's a lot of reasons to see it a lot of cool history behind it and it's absolutely beautiful once when I was on my instagram feed and I just asked people what they thought their favorite park was or what they would recommend. End of a family was only going to go to one national park. Which one should it be and overwhelmingly there? A two parks that came to the top of the list and Yosemite was of of course one of those parks. You can probably guess with the second park is but if you don't know that'll be our next podcast where we talk about that park so it's really a beautiful awful park. It's a place where people just love Being in nature and see all the beautiful scenery so there's plenty of reasons to go enjoy it now now. Let's talk about actually getting there and enjoying it. We like to start with logistics. So let's talk about getting to Yosemite National Park so Yosemite is in the northern Sierra Nevada's and the Sierra Nevada's of course are the mountain range that are pretty much the backbone of California. I guess you can think of him. They had really from the northern part of California kind of where it meets up with the Cascade Mountain Range which of course travels up into Oregon and Washington but so it's all the way in the northern part of California and then it moves its way down almost to Bakersfield so really pretty far down in the southern part of California so so this is a huge stretch of a mountain range. So if you're coming into California from a state that's east of it which will be most of us so from the South side you have I fifteen eighteen coming down from Las Vegas pretty much or I forty coming across from Arizona. They meet together in Barstow. And then you get onto a smaller all our highway fifty eight. That kind of takes you up to Bakersfield. And you're traveling that north kind of near cities like Salia and Fresno those are some of the names going to hear Mir said and then kind of modesto and stuff. So if you're coming from the south side that's the route that you're taking and the major highways if you're coming from the north you'd probably be coming in from. I eighty out of Nevada. So you come into kind of the Reno Tahoe area north Tahoe. And then you can cut across and had down one of the smaller roads like by through Sacramento onto that highway over intimate said and stuff or you can take maybe one of the smaller routes through the mountains. Although you're gonNA WANNA check the weather on that so in the winter months they might not be opened. Those are really the north and south access points for year round and now in the summer months. There's also Thai Yoga road which is open and that's also known as highway one twenty and that will go from three ninety five which is a hi California state highway that goes north to south on the eastern side of the Sierra Nevada's and it will connect you through Yosemite National Park. And then take take you onto the west side of the park so highway one twenty is a great option and will significantly cut down the hours that you need. You're coming over from kind of the middle of the state are anywhere If you're coming over from death valley or you're coming over from Nevada. We were coming from Great Basin National Park. That was our last stop before this so we were coming from the side as well but again Togo road is only open during the summer when the weather is good so you could easily have. GPS that you're checking on Routes and if you're looking at stuff during the summer it's going to tell you you can take that route and then if you're there after the snow L. start falling and they close it which is probably late October or sometime in November. They're going to close the road and then it won't open up again until they're able to fully clear it So sometime in the late spring early summer so be sure that you know if that roads closer not on the Yosemite National Park page as soon as you go to their website they tell you immediately of yoga. Rotas is passed. It's pretty much the highest alert right at the top of the page. So you'll know that it is closed but you Kinda WanNa know before hand while you're trying to plan whether or not you have three to four hour detour of other highways to get across the Sierra Nevada range. If you can't take Taga pass so that's one key thing to know is toga passes a great option to take we took it in our RV. We didn't feel that it was anything that significantly scary. I know it has the it's the highest elevation for any of the passes in California so I guess that makes it a pretty tough passed but it didn't seem like an unusual pass ask for us in We have a super see so We have that big these Jin. It didn't have any troubles trying to climb that and nothing felt really like a Sharp steep drop off where we didn't have any shoulder or We didn't have the ability to pull over and just kind of let the engine cool if we needed to with the brakes or anything. They're are definitely Were plenty places to pull over and we were able to do it slowly so I don't think that taking that road is anything that scary But we also do a lot of mountain driving so Maybe some people would feel a little less comfortable with it. But I don't think it's one of the worst passes out there so I wouldn't be too afraid of it. Just take your time and then the other thing to know is if you are taking that road and then heading over or really if you're taking any of the three routes from the Western decide that come into the park there are significant limitations if you're coming with an RV and this was one of the hardest things that I was trying to navigate because the last thing you want to do is start getting towards Yosemite and then realized there's a tunnel and you're not gonNA fit through and now you're still trying to figure out how you're going to work in your reservations and stuff like that so I just want to take a few minutes to talk about those three Roads that you take on the western side of the park so the three roads that are going to get you into Yosemite valley and what the limitations are so. If you don't have a big rig skip ahead a few minutes you probably don't care about this but if you do please listen. Listen because I don't want you to be stuck thinking you're getting through somewhere and and then you realize that you're not so the for the Yosemite Valley entrance into the main Yosemite Valley and we'll talk about kind of four different main areas to the park but I highly recommend that if you're going to Yosemite make sure you put Yosemite Devali on your to do list of what you're going to see because it's it's phenomenal probably the it is the busiest part of the park. But it's that's for good reason. It's just is absolutely beautiful and it's kind of the the highlight of Yosemite. So be sure you do the valley. Now there's three roads that will take you into the valley so kind of the different entrance prince centers on that side so from if you were to take tiogue a road or you're coming in from further west onto highway one twenty. That's kind of the North West highway that So then it goes south east as it dips down into Yosemite Valley and it's also called big big oak flat road. This is A road it's not terribly wind ear steep or anything crazy but you are probably really not going to want your RV with you on this for a few reasons one. It does have a little bit of kind of Twisting and turning so I think that there are some limitations. I don't think it super tight for here. I think that it says you could be up to like a forty five foot. RV and handle this road but the problem you're going to get into is that there's three tunnels you're going to pass ask as you're coming into Yosemite Valley and if I remember correctly I was driving when we were doing the tunnel so I wasn't able to write the dimensions down but I'm pretty sure the first sign said thirteen thirteen ten for height the minimum height on the tunnel also. Not too big of a deal. I think most of us can fit that think the next one was thirteen six and then the final one I believe was ten six or ten three. So we have a super c JAYCO SENECA THE specs ex- on the sheet. Say that it's thirteen one so we have thirteen feet one inch up to the air conditioning unit on the top we actually have our Internet extenders stuff. That kind of goes above that so we like to see a clearance of thirteen six when we go someplace our garage door at our home. RV Shop is fourteen feet in even that sometimes feels like a bit of a push. So it's really nice to see a fourteen foot clearance but I can guarantee you that even if a tunnel is ten six on the outer edge which of of course means at the center of the tunnel you have more clearance. I'm certainly not fitting a thirteen foot..

"And now, we're at the end, and that might be a little sad except that even just listen to this all again at any time. But for now this ending happens in Yosemite national park with true love and Bobby mcferrin. I'm Paul, Shirley. And these are the stories I tell on dates. Yosemite national park a Thursday afternoon. This one is in today unless you can call it a date when you go on a camping trip with your girlfriend. We've spent the past two nights in a tent with a broken poll, we've stood over the campfire so long. We both smell like survivors of a house fire. We've showered sort of in a glorified between near the campsites entrance. We've done less grimy things to we took pictures of ourselves in front of half dome. We played with the chipmunks we took a hike and left the trail and the entire time. I marveled at the way she moves the way she laughs the way her eyes get big when she surprised. Now, we're in the same Volkswagen. We were in on our first date driving down from the edge of the Kenyan that overlooks the Yosemite valley floor. We're taking turns picking out songs to play on the ipod. That's connected to the Volkswagen's radio, by way of one of those FM adapters. She picks out the best song stereo phonics ever recorded Dakota from language sex violence other. Thinking about and thinking of you summertime thinking it was June. Yeah. Figured it was June laying back head on the grass chewing gum having some laughs. You made me feel like the one you made me feel like the one when the song is over. We're halfway into the valley. I tell her to find Bobby mcferrin on the ipod. She looks at me. I can't see it because of her sunglasses. But I'm sure one of the eyebrows, I like has dipped in incredulity. Trust me. I see I drive. We listen. I park. We walked to the main lodge in the valley. Get a beer with me. I asked her she says, of course, she will. We get in line behind the blonde family of four outfitted in north face gear that probably cost as much in aggregate as a used Corolla when it is our turn at the counter we order beers. We take the beers. We sit down I look around. And then I start crying. Which is a weird thing to do inside. You'll similarly national park across from your kind and beautiful girlfriend and in front of a tall frosty beer. So naturally, she asks me what's wrong..
