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:
