Instagram family fun in Yosemite

Spotlighting the best of a multigenerational family trip to Yosemite National Park

Our recent Yosemite National Park adventure with Grandpa was one of the most memorable family excursions of my life. My daughters loved traveling from our home in the San Francisco Bay Area and experiencing a new part of the park with “Grampy,” and my father was overjoyed with watching the girls’ wonder at the natural world.

I’ve written previously about our adventure. Now it’s time to share the very best of my Instagram entries from the trip.

IMHO there’s no better way to celebrate the parks’ centennial than by sharing tales of family fun. Hopefully these images will weave a compelling narrative and inspire you to follow in our footsteps with your own brood.
