BTS: Camping in Yosemite National Park

Earlier this month, we and some friends took our families to Yosemite to camp for 3 nights. 6 adults, 10 kids total. For some of our friends and their kiddos, it was their first time visiting the National Park. Needless to say, they were blown away by the beautiful landscape and the natural beauty that surrounded us.

We had a lot of fun! We visited the main scenic spots, hiked Mist Trail to see Vernal Falls, and biked through and around the park (yes all 16 of us!). All 3 families meal prepped and split the meals for our entire trip. I’m not sure why, but camp food always tastes great. I’m sure it has something to do with the excitement of being outdoors, especially with loved ones. After dinner, the kids gathered around the fire and made s’mores. For breakfast, I attempted to make “good” coffee and it was terrible. Friends were gracious and still drank it.

My goal for the trip was to be purposeful behind the camera and document the time we had together in this beautiful place — all on film.

Cameras: Contax G2 and Pentax K1000
