I did a two-day 600 mile round trip for a family event to Yosemite. The drive through central California’s agricultural flat lands is a achingly dull and the weather was miserably hot, but finally I arrived. I had never seen this extraordinary place before. Although my photo does not do justice, I got to see why it is has been painted and photographed by so many people for so many years.
“But no temple made with hands can compare with Yosemite. Every rock in its walls seems to glow with life…as if into this one mountain mansion Nature had gathered her choicest treasures…” – John Muir
