Getting a campsite in Yosemite should be an Olympic sport these days. Reservations fill up faster than you can click the “Book” button. Not quick enough to score campsite reservations for Yosemite National Park? These spots are the best places to stay near Yosemite National Park.

Over the Fourth of July this year, I had the chance to stay at one of Tentrr’s Sierra Foothill locations. I picked the Falling Waters Oasis due to its proximity to North Lake Tahoe. My plan was to use our Tentrr as basecamp to escape the madness of Fourth of July at the lake while we bouldered our little hearts out over the holiday.

I’m the person who always manages to kill someone’s car battery, especially bouldering in Bishop in the winter. Now that I have my own car (Opal!), I’m trying to take extra good care of her. My day job as a software engineer allows me to be remote. More often than not, I am (trying to be) on the road. Toss in my side gig as a blogger and photographer, and I need to power my electronics at all times. Jackery sent over the Explorer 240 for me to play with while on the road. Here’s how it fared.
I’ve been winging it on plans lately. I seriously just don’t feel like planning anything. I realized a few weeks ago that my birthday was coming up. Last year, I backpacked in Zion. I’d taken the day off work, but aside from that there was nothing on the schedule.
The Sierra Club Hiker’s Hut in Sam McDonald County Park is a spot I’ve been meaning to check out for a while. It’s close enough for me to not want to spend a weekend there when I could be elsewhere. But for a quick overnighter for my birthday, it was perfect and did not disappoint.
Last October, my Feral Female Weekend crew and I reunited to chase fall colors in the Eastern Sierra. The best thing about hiking with these ladies–aside from the belly laughs and conversation–is we all absolutely love food, because I am 98.3% sure that I hike so I can eat.
After deciding to hike no further than the closest spot we could camp, we made the prettiest snack board imaginable. Now you can create your own, too!
