Day by day details of our short trip to Yosemite in July 2020.
Thinking about visiting Yosemite with kids? We decided to check out what the park is like with the day-use pass system. It was a surreal experience filled with waterfall hikes, quiet beaches, and bears. Check out our 2 day itinerary here, including our best-of’s and lessons learned.
On our last day at Lassen, we packed up camp early and headed to the main part of the Park. In just one day, we ventured into the Subway Cave Lava Tube, earned some Jr Ranger badges, had a picnic near the shore of Manzanita Lake, and explored Lassen’s hydrothermal areas.

On Day 2 of our Lassen camping trip we hiked Cinder Cone with the kids, and got to peer into the crater of a volcano! Click here for more on the hike, and why Butte Lake is the perfect place to relax after a fun adventure on the trails.
