Collecting Memories: Yosemite National Park

One of my first explorations of California was a wonderful trip to Yosemite National Park.  Terry and I had just started our beautiful relationship and it was our second trip as a couple.  The memories are so special and so is this wonderful park.

When I heard the news that 2 men were climbing El Capitan it brought back memories of how dizzy I felt just looking out at the panoramic view.  I had seen the images of beautiful waterfalls and the amazing peaks through National Geographic and postcards, but nothing, nothing could compare to actually seeing it for myself.  As I gazed out to vast and ongoing mountain range my brain hardly could process that what I was seeing was real.  I almost felt like reaching out to touch the canvas that an amazing artist had painted with this scene but it was real.  For the first time in my life I was moved to tears just by what I was seeing.
