Yosemite Part 1: Day 1, Tunnel View, Curry Village
We had always been interested in visiting Yosemite as a family but knew that accommodations had to be made far in advance. Browsing around online two weeks before our trip, luckily we were able to reserve a tent cabin in Curry Village, one of three lodging areas within Yosemite Valley.
Getting to Curry Village included a lengthy drive on a windy road (which had Sam getting carsick), but the reward was the view after emerging from "the tunnel", with views of Half Dome and Bridalveil Falls. Once we were able to park our car near the tents and stretch our legs out, everyone was refreshed by the beautiful scenery and clean air surrounding us.
Our tent cabin had a double bed and two singles, solid walls with canvas roof, and surprise, an outlet. Bathrooms and showers were a short walk away. We enjoyed dinner at the Pizza Deck before taking an evening stroll on a mysterious wooden path which led us to a walk along a river.
There was much to see and do within walking distance of our tent cabin. We were asleep well before the 10pm curfew to prepare for the next day's activities.
