Christmas Day, we took off around 7am. Fortunately no snow on the road and so no chains required. It was a nice day but really freezing day.
We headed to Curry Village to check-in to unload our bags before it gets dark. Curry Village became one of our home in Yosemite NP.
Curry Village has basically become one of home in Yosemite NP. It is in the vicinity to many of the top Yosemite attractions, close to some campgrounds, and a shuttle stop conveniently located right across from the check-in office and an ample parking space for everyone.
The next morning, the 3 get ready for their hike to the top of Vernal Falls. I did not join them to make this hike faster for them, I will be just waiting in the car parked in Happy Isles area. Me and my husband already reach the top of Vernal last February 2014. My husband took a video and pictures of their hike. And at one point, almost near the top, my daughter does not want to go on anymore. So they decided to hike back down.
From Vernal Falls, we went to the Mirror Lake. What an awesome view to see the lake frozen, frost everywhere…
We drove around to take some awesome photos of the valley.
