How to spend a day at Yosemite National Park

Even though I adore cities and I loved San Francisco, our first road trip stop (read here),  I just couldn’t wait to explore Yosemite National Park. After driving for about 3,5 hours, we arrived around noon at the Arch Rock entrance accompanied by the beautiful Merced river. (find our route here) Entering the park I noticed that the main attractions are very easy to find because they are well marked by road signs and arrows. It also became clear to me that this park is gigantic and I already felt sorry we were here for only half a day! We couldn’t do any hikes (next time I’ll definitely stay here for a few days!) but we did visit some beautiful places which are easy accessible by car!
See what you can do in just half a day!
