Last week I had the ridiculous good fortune of being able to take a trip to San Diego. One day of our trip we drove out to Anza-Borrego Desert State Park to hike and see the amazing mass bloom of wildflowers.
Dan and I rarely travel back to a previously visited location. Yosemite Valley is now an exception. Two years ago we came through Yosemite Valley as part of a backpacking trip from Tuolumne Meadows (in the High Sierras) to Half Dome and then to the Valley.
When we started planning our John Muir hike, we decided that we wanted a few extras days to spend in Yosemite Valley so we booked ourselves into the Curry Village tent cabins (now known as Half Dome Village.)
