Our Awesome Yosemite & Monterey Adventure Revisited ~ May 2012 ~ w/ pics ~ Completed!

Well, I have to admit, after our last trip to Utah last summer; I was done planning trips for a while. I just got burned out I guess. I had no plans for the Summer of 2012. We anticipated our daughter going to Diabetes Camp and knew it was usually held the first weekend in June (the time we usually go on vacation) so I didn’t want to plan anything to conflict with her camp.

Fast forward to February 1st, 2012. On line registration opened for Arizona Diabetes Camp. Lo and behold, the camp doesn’t start until June 9th. I guess we do have some time between the time that school lets out until her camp.

Hmmmm. We start thinking about where we might want to go that’s not too far away. We asked our daughter, “Where would you like to go before camp?” She doesn’t even hesitate and states, rather excitedly, that she wants to go back to Yosemite! Hmmm. OK. Come to think of it, that would be perfect! It doesn’t require a full week and it was already planned 3 years ago when we went, so I don’t need to do much more planning. Eureka! I think we have a trip.

Hence, Our Awesome Yosemite & Monterey Adventure Revisited is born!

The first thing we needed to do was make sure that we had places to stay. Checked the Tenaya Lodge, and yes, a 2 Queen Cabin is available. Score! Checked the Embassy Suites in Seaside. Score! Next we have to secure airfare to San Jose. Fortunately, Southwest’s pricing wasn’t too bad, so we booked our airfare. Car rental is a little steep and gas prices will be astronomical in California, but we’re on vacation, right! Booked!

Our plan is to fly out of Phoenix on Memorial Day. We have a mid morning flight out to San Jose. We will rent a car and drive 3 and a half hours to Oakhurst where we will do a grocery stop and then head to our lodge. We will the then be at Yosemite on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday morning before driving to Monterey. On Friday we plan to drive down the PCH 1 towards Big Sur and beyond to Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park and take in the coastline.

So sit back, relax and I hope you enjoy my trip report.

Next: And, away we go!
