On our fourth day in the park, we headed to Yosemite Valley, where most of the activities of the park are held. It took us an hour on the park’s shuttle to get to the Valley. We were planning on hiking up the Half Dome which is supposed to be a 7 hour hike one way, but we didn’t know you needed a permit. Makes sense.
So we ended up taking a tram tour of the area instead of getting lost and not seeing the iconic spots of Yosemite since we had no car to go to those spots ourselves.
The tram tour was okay. Our host pointed out the various landmarks of the Valley. I wish we had brought the car so we could have spent more time in certain landmarks, but at least we got to still see them!
