Yosemite is mystical and inspiring. As I drove through the valley the giant rock formations reminded me of towering regal like cathedrals that demanded respect. There’s something about the wilderness that makes the soul happy.
Over the weekend I conquered Half Dome with the most amazing hiking group ever. It took 11 hrs, traveled close to 19 miles and gained 4,800 ft in the process. As I clinched on to the cable the last 400 ft to the top the question was asked, “…and why are we doing this?!”, teary eyed and scared shitless with adrenaline pumping I could only answer, “you only live once”.
