Words cannot describe the beauty of Yosemite National Park. I spent nearly 3 years living in central California and never once traveled the short distance (less than 100 miles) to one of the most well known parks in the United States. If you have the opportunity to go, GO!
Shaun took me to my first Yosemite visit one chilly Sunday in March. We drove through Yosemite Valley and hiked around a bit at various stops. He used his film camera and captured these breathtaking photos:
Definitely add this place to your list of destinations to see in your lifetime. I hope to some day conquer the grueling 16-mile hike up Half Dome to reach the summit… but I need to build up a little more endurance first. For now, my goal is to backpack somewhere in the park this summer.
