One of the most memorable vacations I’ve had in the recent years was my trip to Yosemite National Park this summer. My family goes to Yosemite each year with Mario, my dad’s friend, and his family, but this year we also took my friend Erik, my grandma, and uncle. This vacation was memorable because it was the first time I saw a mother bear with two cubs in the woods, went camping with Erik, my grandma, and uncle. This vacation means a lot to me simply because it’s one of the only activities my family likes to do together and it also takes us out of the hot and dry city. We get to escape all the drama and problems to just relax and breathe in fresh air.
My family really doesn’t spend time together and when we do its really hard for us to find something to do that we all agree on but we all like going camping to
Throughout this trip we didn’t have many problems except that my grandma wanted to leave the first day but as soon as she got used to the environment she loved it and didn’t want to come back. Taking Erik really helped me because I wasn’t bored and was able to explore more than I usually do. One thing that didn’t work well was the drive there because we had to go in the pick-up and it was really uncomfortable but the view made up for it.
This trip made me more aware of nature and how amazing it can be. You really don’t need casinos or big buildings from the cities. All you really need if your family to have a good time and to leave your problems behind.
