Yay! Free entry!! It looks like most of the special events happen on the first weekend.

I have a campsite in the valley during that time so it looks like I got lucky. I had no Idea. I feel kinda guilty. Will they let me pay anyway.....lol.

This will be the first time in a long time, I am going to the park with no real plans in mind. Going to bring bikes and do the tourist thing in the valley. No big treks or all day outings, just a slow pace of life in the most beautiful setting I can think of. Lazy day by the river, a quick run up to Sierra Point and maybe the Mist Trail, maybe explore a bit (by myself) over at the Sunnyside Bench/Fern Ledge.

A 4 day, 3 night vacation in the valley for a family of 4, including gas, is going to cost me about $400.00. OK, maybe $450 if we go for pizza and beer at the Curry Village deck.

Can't really beat that!

Ok...maybe that was a few too many exclamation marks in the title. I got carried away.

It's not that exciting.

Can I come too? I would love to one time go to Yosemite and not have any plans on what I am going to do and just hang out and enjoy the view.

Funny you should ask...My campsite reservation is for 6 ppl and two cars. I only have four and one car, so I could squeeze someone in....

The bidding begins at a 6-pack of Sierra Nevada Pal Ale...
