Yosemite National Park

This time, Jack’s Corner is situated at the base of Yosemite Falls.


The drive to Yosemite was long, but it was worth the wait. Well, almost – I was hoping it would have been covered in snow.

But nonetheless, it was spectacular. Giant granite domes overlooked the small village, with tall sequoia trees scattered throughout.

We were eager to start exploring as soon as we got there so we did a short walk/boulder climb to the base of Yosemite Falls. It was astonishingly silent compared to the bustle of San Fran.

That night we decided to go to bed early so we could get up at sunrise and go for a run.

But sometimes, plans change, and I couldn’t have been happier! The next morning I peered through the curtains to see if it was going to rain on our run. Then I saw something amazing: Snow, and lots of it!

I immediately started jumping on Wardos bed in excitement knowing that I would finally be able to hike through Yosemite in the snow!

Once I had calmed down, we put on our boots and headed for the top of Nevada Falls.

I have never seen anything more beautiful in my life – other than Heath Shaw’s premiership winning smother in the 2010 Grand Final.
