|Peace Love Hike|
Arrived early in the morning via YARTS and got settled into my campsite so that I could explore the park. I chose site #13 because I will be officially beginning on the 13th. Discovered that my chest strap's buckle had been broken in transit. CRAP! Laid on the picnic table and just starred at the trees for what seemed like hours. It was so calming after my trip out.
After enjoying the quiet and curious critters, I headed over to the Visitor's Center only to find out that there was no transportation to Mariposa Grove... BUMMER! I grabbed a picnic lunch and headed to Cook's Meadow to take in the scenery.
Spent several hours wandering Cook's Meadow and surrounding areas. Enjoyed the views and animals. Grabbed a shower at Curry Village Pool House and decided to call it an evening.
Just as I was headed back to camp I noticed the alpenglow on Half Dome. What a relaxing and gorgeous day! Can't wait to see what I discover tomorrow.
