Yosemite National Park, America - 19th July 2012

By: Shilo

Good Morning Mum and Mandrara.

Today the weather was a little bit rainy in the morning, so we decided to visit the Mariposa Grove. There we could see the giant sequoias. It was really cool to see these huge trees. We learned that these trees donít die from age, after thousands of years they easily fall over because they get too heavy.

And not only were the trees themselves giant, their fir cone were also very huge.

In the Forest we found this cool rock.

From the Forest we drove to Glacier point. When we arrived there the rain had stopped and the sun came out. From the viewpoint we had a great view over the park.

Glacier point lies 7214ft / 2199m over the sea-level. It was very windy so high above, so we were hiding behind these rocks to get some break.

After our short break it was time for us, to move on to the Tunnel View. Doesnít this view is really fantastic?

In the evening we planned to walk to the Yosemite Falls. On our way we stopped at this lake to swim a little bit. But the water was so cold for us, so we only hold our feed into the water.

After a while we moved on, but then we stopped because we saw this Mule deer. It is so cool.

And near the Mule deer we saw a real Black Bear. First it was scary, but then we saw the Park rangers and we started to relax. We were really sorry when we heard that the bear was hurt. We hope that the Rangers could help him.

It took a while but finally we arrived at the Yosemite Falls. They were cool, but I think in spring they were much more amazing.

Because the river bed was mostly desiccated we were brave and climbed through it to come nearer to the waterfall. It wasnít easy but it made a lot of fun.

On our way back to Curry Village we decided to take the bus again. But we had to wait a little bit for it.

Tomorrow we will move on to the Death Valley. It will take a while before we will get there. So we had to stand up very early. Because of that I want to get enough sleep.

So good night
