I have been to Yosemite many times but to my recollection only in the hotel once. We were awaiting the order of a pizza after the camping meal we had attempted turned sideways (and, if I am honest, to satisfy our impulses after a day doing Half Dome). The couches were quite comfy and the space beautiful.

We had dinner in the ‘nook’ at the Ahwahnee 25 years ago. Just as my wife tried on her engagement ring, a quiet snow fell. A year later, we married in the Yosemite chapel and danced at the Ahwahnee under a summer blue moon. We’ve been back every year since; each season is simply magical. It will always be the Ahwahnee.
