Bob and I were newlyweds, and in our first full year, we planned a trip called, “The West,” which included some time in Yosemite. It was beautiful. That was in 1995.
I found these photos on an old memory card (has only 256mb). We stayed at the old AhWahNee Hotel. It was very rustic, but elegant at the same time. It doesn’t bear that name anymore; it’s known as the Majestic Yosemite Hotel. The Ahwahnee was renamed the Majestic Yosemite Hotel on March 1, 2016, due to a legal dispute between the US Government, which owns the property, and the outgoing concessionaire, Delaware North, which claims rights to the trademarked name
The Majestic Yosemite Hotel was specifically designed to highlight its natural surroundings, featuring Yosemite Falls, Half Dome and Glacier Point. The hotel holds a historic heritage as it is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is a National Historic Landmark. The destination of queens and presidents alike, this distinctive Yosemite hotel offers a perfect balance of history, hospitality and elegance.
