US dairy // part 3

7. 06. 17

After our last night in San Francisco, we headed to the next destination: Pinecrest Lake in Stanislaus National Forest. And it was *surprise, surprise* unexpectedly beautiful. It kind of reminded me of American youth films such as The Parent Trap, where kids go to a summer camp by the lake. I imagine it's wonderful to spend the summer in this place, you can swim in the lake, climb mountains, watch movies under the stars... My inner scout was already planning scavenger hunts.

On the way to our airbnb, we stopped for dinner in the cutest little town Sonora. Fairy lights were literally everywhere, and you could feel the hospitality of the locals in the air. We ate a delicious dinner at Diamondback Grill and then enjoyed an evening stroll around the city.

Finally, we arrived at our airbnb in Jamestown. Of course we knew that this one is going to be special, but we were still lost for words. We stayed in the so-called Casita, and if you are planning to visit Yosemite National Park I highly recommend staying in this wonderful place.

We woke up to a gloomy morning, and made our way to California's most famous National Park: Yosemite. The weather was kind of crappy, but it was still amazing. We walked to the waterfall, visited Yosemite Valley and then drove around the park. Its nature is completely stunning, and I have to say that all National Parks in US (at least the ones we visited) are organized to perfection. 

We spent the majority of our day in Yosemite, and in the evening headed for dinner in Jamestown. When we returned to our little Casita it started to rain again. We fell asleep listening to the raindrops and it felt like there's only us in our little home in the world.

The next day we left Jamestown and visited Calaveras Big Trees National State Park. If you seek peace and serenity, I can guarantee you'll find it in this park. It's absolutely beautiful and you can marvel at tall trees and get to know their stories. 

We ate in a little town called Murphys, which was, again, beautiful and picturesque. Our Airbnb for the night was located in Visalia, a.k.a the gateway to sequoias. After a good night’s sleep, we woke up to a gloriously beautiful morning and drove to Sequoia National Park, where we drove around, hung out with the giant trees and enjoyed in majestic nature.

On our way to Ridgecrest, we stopped at Lake Isabella. Anyone who knows me is well aware of the fact that I am sunset-obsessed. So you can only imagine how I felt when we stopped to this:

There’s no filter on these photos. I have never seen anything like this before, my heart was literally melting and I was lost for words. I know this may seem as a slight (or huge) exaggeration, but I was honestly in heaven. After 389448938948 photos, we continued with our drive and arrived to Ridgecrest, where we stayed the night. 

This is it for part 3 of our US travels, see you soon with part 4! :)
