journal #1 | yosemite

Dear friends,

Life is truly a mystery at times, isn’t it? A long journey, one full of ups and downs–like a road trip. This all sounds so cliche. *laughs* #deepthoughts

Anyway, this week has been rather busy. So, I won’t bore you with all the minute little details. Last weekend, I attended a pilates class and stretched everything out. It’s good to stretch. Then during the week, my family and I visited Yosemite National Park. As you know, I’m quite the national park geek. 😍 To describe our visit in a few phrases, I’d say “big trees,” “magnificent mountain peaks,” and “cooling rivers.” I’ve now been to all the different areas of Yosemite. Hooray! It was lovely there, though quite hot! Not too many bugs, maybe they were dying in the heat like I was. xD On our way there, I listened to Jonathan Park and NEEDTOBREATHE’s album Rivers in the Wasteland.

After hiking through Mariposa Grove and lunch at a picnic spot in Wawona, my sister and I walked to the Pioneer Center nearby. The park had displayed a variety of historic carriages and wagons. I was a little surprised to see them in such great condition. They even offered stagecoach rides! We continued walking across a covered bridge to a small village of cabins. It interested me to see the different kinds of cabins and homes the pioneers lived in. If you ever get the chance to visit Yosemite, take it! It’s one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been to. Even the small bump-outs and vistas on the road are gorgeous.

Have you had any adventures this summer? I’d love to hear about them.

Let’s chat!

live creatively,

Gaby
