When I looked up lodging in Yosemite, so much came up that I got really overwhelmed and ended up just searching for the cheapest available places that also had heat thus landing us in Half Dome Village cozied up in one of their canvas tent cabins. It was really fun "camping" in the snow. That was a first.
Turns out Yosemite really is everything it's cracked up to be.
Neither of our parents ever took us, so David and I decided it was about time to take ourselves (especially now that we live only 5 hours away!) Gideon beat us there by a long shot – hopefully he'll make the trip again before he hits his 20s.
