Packing for Yosemite

Ah, labor day weekend. The last big weekend of summer. I am absolutely excited to say that I will be joining my friend Anna on a trip to Yosemite National Park in a couple of days, and will be staying there for a few days before making our way down to San Luis Obispo for a night.

This will be my second time visiting the Park, and there is still so many things on my bucket list regarding the place, like hiking (definitely not climbing) the Half Dome, watching and photographing the starry night sky, enjoying the beautiful sceneries and streams, and not getting spooked by the haunted cabin we’re staying at (yes, people have actually seen the ghost herself!)

I just finished packing all of my things, and I thought I’d show you some of the photo gear I’ll be bringing along.

  1. Motorola Walkie Talkie
  2. Energizer 200 Lumens Headlamps
  3. Hoya 52mm Neutral Density
  4. Tiffen 52mm Circular Polarizer
  5. Sony NEX5 Mirrorless Lens
  6. Nikon D7000

A few of these items were bought just a couple of days ago, and have long been on my list. So stoked to get to try it out in Yosemite, and in just a month from now, in New Mexico. Eep!

    You are very well equipped for the labor day and I like it you take the walkie talkies with you :)

      It was definitely a great help having walkie talkies. We ended up having random conversations with nearby walkie talkie users using the same frequency, haha.

    That’s a smart idea to bring walkie talkies. I’d love to go to Yosemite someday, hope you had a blast! :)
