And should you, reader, want to live out this highly relevant quote from a man who loved mountains, here’s a compelling option called Rush Creek Lodge, and it’s the first resort to pop up in Yosemite in 25 years. It’s accepting reservations now.
To start, here’s your slideshow. Get in there. Take a look around.
And here’s everything else you need to know:
There are 143 rooms, a handful of suites and some hillside villas.
So, yeah, we’ll focus on the hillside villas: fireplace, private deck for your sunset-viewing needs and not a television in sight. (That’s right. They did do that.)
They claim a solid 20 acres.
Which involve a gold-panning stream, a fire pit by a saltwater pool, two hot tubs, hammocks and a fly-casting pond.
Though you’re encouraged to get off of them.
Be sure to pencil in a giant sequoia hike. You know, since you’re there and all.
Soon, there will be a restaurant and terrace-having tavern.
In the interim, you’ll have to take your happy hour drinks and snacks poolside.
Let’s hear it for the interim.
