On Sunday we headed to “Part 2” of the trip, that basically felt like the complete opposite of our days in SF. In our plans to drive to Yosemite, we rented a ranch in the nearby city, Mariposa. Now, I had heard all sorts of great things about Yosemite, but this ranch sort of stole the show for me. I found it online, read that it had a hot tub and a fire pit, and booked it. It was a pleasant surprise arriving at the top of a hill with acres of land and pretty views!
The house was about a mile hike to a private lake (with a rope swing!!!). We made the trip but the weather was still a bit chilly for that. This is definitely a place we want to return to when the weather gets warm, and with more people! The house has three bedrooms plus a fold out couch, and just in general, a LOT of space. I think we’ll be back. ;] Here’s a video Jordan put together using footage from the trip:

That place looks beautiful! I would love to be able to take a trip like that someday.
I want to book that place! I love that it’s dog friendly and there’s a private lake. Finn would love that. He loves to swim but his anxiety makes him not always suitable for the dog beach (he freaks out at all the people). This place looks perfect for a weekend away :).
ahhh! gorgeous! love that you could get away… and that penny could come!!
Ahh, so serene! We shall return!
lovely video!!! beautiful nights!
That video is beautiful! What a gorgeous place!
What a fantastic experience! I bet Penny had the time of her life. I hope someone asks Jordan to start doing music videos or promotional material. That is such a great video that he made 🙂
