“The mountains are calling…”

I took a brief hiatus from the blog for a trip to Yosemite National Park last week.  It was a beautiful place, far beyond what words or pictures can adequately describe.  That is the true value of our national parks — not only do they preserve our plants and wildlife, but they provide us with spaces for awe, for wonder, and for experiencing something grander and more majestic than ourselves.

I hiked below Bridalveil Fall and then around the loop for a bit, with stunning views of El Capitan, Half Dome, and Cathedral Rocks.  I even saw a rainbow over the falls!  All in all it was a great little solo trip to relax and recharge, read and reflect, and revel in the beauty of nature for a little while.  Here are a few pictures from my travels, if you’d like to see.
