What do you get when you put three friends, one car, and an Airbnb mishap?
My two friends and I planned on driving from Los Angeles to Yosemite National Park. We stocked up on food, fuel, and booked an adorable trailer on Airbnb. Only when we got there, we realized we’d entered from the wrong side of the park, and to get to our reserved trailer would take up to five hours through the windy roads.
So we decided to camp in my car.
We prayed no bears would smell the snacks in the vehicle, and huddled up with spare clothing for warmth (boy, was it cold!) Ultimately, our lack of sleep resulted in endless photography of nighttime skies, constellations, and an epic sunrise over Half Dome. Of course, more time would have been great to fully explore Yosemite, but our 2-day escapade felt a lot longer with the sleepless nights and activity-filled days.
Given the chance to go back, I would do it all over again!
