Death Valley, Yosemite and more / USA

Now we drove approx 5.000 km through the western part oft the states, but we are still hungry for more adventure, more nature, more pics and more travel. So on short notice, we decided to drive further down the road, passing some more national parks. The first was Death Valley with its Area 51.

From there directly to Yosemite. It was already nearly dark and it was March. March means, most of the roads were closed, and for the few open roads, you need chains. Well, we had no chains and no time to drive another way. So we trusted the American big RV with its 11 tons and 500 PS. With success.

We had to drive through 10 foot high tunnels with a 13 foot high RV – so I had to lay down on the roof of the RV (watching for the sealing) while she drove very slowly through the tunnel, alway in the middle between both lanes. No one got hurt. Thanks god. We arrived at the Yosemite village and after having had a good dinner, we had to store all our food in a metal box. Because of bears. So I watched the whole night for bears with may camera, but nothing… I need to claim my money back…

So next day after NOT having seen any bears, we started a trail through the Yosemite
