The Birdhouse cabin was right next to a babbling creek with an incredible wrap-around porch, grill and hot tub. The cabin had a fully stocked kitchen, huge dining and living room area and a loft space with a King-size bed and two smaller beds, plus plenty of room for our daughter Lotte’s Pack-and-Play.
It was perfect for our two-night stay, even if we did arrive a bit later than we expected to on our first evening.
Our cute little Birdhouse, tucked away and secluded in the woods.
We caught the scene at Tunnel View, the Yosemite Valley Floor Tour (which takes place on a tractor!), seeing the Bridalveil Falls, having a picnic and checking out the Yosemite Falls, as well. Unfortunately two things we wanted to see — Glacier Point Road and Mariposa Grove which had both Sequoias and Redwoods — were closed because of the ongoing fire.
Checking out the scenery at Tunnel View. You can see the whole valley from here, and it’s so spectacular.
It lightly drizzled on-and-off during our picnic (that’s Yosemite Falls in the background), but that turned out to be great, because no one else was around!
We didn’t do the actual Yosemite Falls hike, but you can take a short path up to the base, which was really beautiful.
Yosemite was so wonderful and majestic, and I’m so glad we got to take Lotte there. Even at her young age, you can still tell she’s noticing everything, and her favorite thing in the world to do right now is point and babble. She did that a lot along our California journey, and it felt great to be able to tell her exactly what she was looking at … just beautiful ole’ America, which is here for her to enjoy.
Yosemite makes for a great family travel adventure.
