Yosemite Weekend with the Parents Itinerary (3 Days)

This weekend itinerary for Yosemite National Park covered the familiar Yosemite Valley as well as a little bit of Hetch Hetchy. By now, we were quite familiar with all the most accessible sights within the reserve, and really the main motivation for this trip was to introduce an auntie from Taiwan to this place as well as seize an opportunity with my Mom to hike to the top of Yosemite Falls (something we hadn't done in all the times we've visited Yosemite over these years). With this year being one of those really wet years (i.e. high snowpack), the return to Hetch Hetchy was to satisfy my curiosity about whether we'd ever get back those flooded conditions we encountered the very first time we visited the back corner of Yosemite back in June 2001. We camped at Wawona Campground, which we knew was pretty reliable in terms of openings since most people tend to book out the Yosemite Valley spots well in advance.
