We took this all day charter bus trip from San Fransisco and it was long, taking at least 4 hours to get to Yosemite's entrance. From there we drove to the valley floor and got out to take some great pics and a stretch. The weather was uncharachteristically warm that day so we were lucky. We got to walk up to Bridal Veil Falls and get to within a few feet of its spray. So exciting. There were several other stops before heading back out and back to the city by the bay. We stopped at a shopping center twice during that trip which had fast food places and a drug store. That was convenient since we were both battling a nasty cough, the remnants of persistent sinus infections, so I loaded up on cough drops and tissues. We got the driver to drop us off that night at our favorite San Fransisco restaurant, Tommy's Joynt, and walked back to the hotel after a huge meal. A great day.
