Yosemite

I used to love summers because that means freedom.
Freedom from waking up at 6am to catch a bus.
Freedom from sitting in a classroom all day.
Freedom from tests and essays.

But now summers don't quite mean the same type of freedom.
Now it's a chance to get away from the computer.
A chance to go for a walk and breathe in some fresh air.

Yosemite Falls


A chance to stand in awe of the wonderful beauty this world has to offer.
A chance to realize that even though I'm approaching a dreaded age, that in the grand scheme of things, I'm quite young.


Glacier Point


A chance to see things from above.
To get a different view on life.




A chance to realize that there are other creatures on this earth
That we should be considerate of their habitat

And that is why I love my summers.

glad you're enjoying your summers from a different perspective.

Great photos. Is that a wolf? Scary.

You're not a scary age. You're just a young'un.
