Walkabout: Day 8, Mile 1560

October 27, 2016 ~ Thursday

7:30a Morning Pages ~ Yosemite National Park

I decided to make my way…

7:30p I felt that I needed to get into the park right away, so I stopped my writing and headed in. I am glad that I did. I had read the forecast calling for a 50% chance of rain by 11a, increasing as the afternoon wore on, and 100% chance for rain tomorrow. If I really wanted to make a go of Yosemite, I would need to begin my journey around 8a, shortly after sunrise.

I was overnighting a bit east of Sacramento, and the GPS said it would take about 3.5 hours to get here. I decided to rise at 3:30a – thirty minutes to reset the car and take care of Justice, one hour for morning pages, departing at 5a.

Well, I was anxious. I woke up at 2:45a and decided to get going.

Because I am unfamiliar with the park and its roads, I almost turned back when the radio channel said the Tioga Pass was closed due to winter weather conditions. Then there were detours and confusing signs. I thought the trip was going to be a bust, but then I found the trail to Yosemite Falls. That was on Tyler’s list. I could score one waterfall hike for him after all!
