So on Day 3 of our West Coast Trip we woke up in our tent in Yosemite’s Half Dome Village. I woke up a little chili and actually quite sore from the hike the day before, but the brisk fresh air was welcoming. We got dressed and jumped in the car. We wanted to stop and check out Yosemite Falls on our way out of the park. We took a short hike to the falls and got a few pics.
Even though it was still early, there were lots of people down there already. Here’s a wide view to show the number of people. For the rest of the pics of us at the falls, I chose pictures that show the least amount of other people.
We got some donuts and went to the convenient store next door for some caffeine. We made our way over to Cupertino.
We decided to get on over to Palo Alto for lunch before going to Stanford University. We ended up at Gott’s Roadside. The burgers and garlic fries were well worth the priciness!
Here’s our hotel Nob Hill Moter Inn, which we liked because there was the parking was right there and it was free. There’s only a couple hotels in San Fran where that’s the case.
After checking in and unloading the car, there was no time to spare, so we ventured off to the Painted Ladies.
Then Rob drove us over to the crookedest street in the world, Lombard Street. What an adventure!
For dinner we decided to drive over to Chinatown for some dinner. The area was a little sketchy at night. We ended up at Yuet Lee Seafood Restaurant. While it wasn’t a fancy place, it was some of the best Chinese food we’ve ever had. I honestly don’t remember the exact thing we ordered, but I believe we had a dish with shrimp and another dish with chicken.
After enjoying our dinner, it was to the hotel so we could plan out our next day.
