Back on the 15th of January at 7am, I was able to snag 2 nights at Lower Pines Campground at Yosemite National Park.
The booking window opens up 6 months in advance on the 15th of each month, and campsites go fast.
Our drive day was beautiful, but when we arrived, we had thunder showers for a few hours and the campground was a crowded smoky soggy mess.
We tried going out for a little touristy adventure. Instead, we sat behind these cars for over an hour until we decided to go back to the trailer. Lucky for us, Sunday was beautiful.
Dinner Saturday Night:
Easy Miso Soup. The name does not lie. This is super easy. I added udon noodles, mushrooms and carrots. Perfect for a rainy night.
