Exploring and photographing Yosemite National Park in California has been a dream of mine ever since I took a History of Photography class in college. I was mesmerized by Ansel Adams’ beautiful work there and I was fortunate enough to go to the university that he donated his archives to before he passed away. Two weeks ago, my best friend and I loaded up the car and went on a road trip to the most incredible place I’ve ever been! I felt so small among the cliffs and waterfalls, was in constant awe of what was before me and got to have some adventures that I’ll remember for a lifetime! We also went to Monterrey Bay & Carmel to spend some time with the ocean. :)
We climbed up Sentinel Dome and watched the sunset one night. The smoke on the mountains is from a forest fire started by a lightning strike.
Climbers sleep on the face of the El Capitan cliff at night, that’s why you can see little white light dots on it!
