Yosemite National Park, California August 2008
Last week our family went to Yosemite for a 5 day camping and lodging. Our children stayed at the Housekeeping Camp for a couple of nights and us oldies, stayed at the Yosemite Lodge where the kids joined us for the remainder of our stay inside the park. I love tenting in the great outdoor but my wife hates camping at any level. To entice her to join us, I have to booked us at a lodge where you have the comforts of a hotel and the price that comes with it LOL. Two hundred bucks per night for a room that does not even have air-conditioning! Admittedly the view is great but it is no better than an ordinary roadside motel that costs fifty bucks give or take a few.
