Yesterday, after homeschooling, work,etc, we drove back into Yosemite. This time our destination was Glacier Point. It took about as long to get to Glacier Point as it took us to get to Yosemite Valley, but in my opinion, it offered better views than you could get in the valley. We weren’t sure what we were going to do once we got there, but the thing to do seemed to be the Illilouette Falls hike the sign for the hike said that it was 1.5 miles to the falls. After 1.5 miles of hiking we realized that it was 1.5 miles a sign that said .9 miles to Illilouette Falls. Despite our destination turning out to be a rusty sign it was a very cool hike. it took us past some prairies, meadows, cliffs, and lots of trees, with a beautiful view of Yosemite valley in the background throughout the whole hike.
We ended up finishing our hike later than we had expected, or rather we forgot how early it was getting dark. We started the hike at around 5:00 and didn’t finish it until around 7:00. However it was worth having to do 1/4th of our hike in the dark to see the stars afterwards. there were probably more stars out than I had ever seen in my life.
Then we ate spaghetti and meatballs.
