This past weekend I took my parents up North to Yosemite. Like normal people we do not plan our trips months in advance or even a few weeks ahead of time. They happen spur of the moment. This trip was no different. Wanting desperately to escape the ever so smoggy and bustling Los Angeles, I told my parents we were going to Yosemite the day before and that they had better packed their bags ready to leave the next morning. Fast forward to the beautiful cozy lodge we chanced upon an hour from Yosemite valley and we were waking up to a gorgeous view… for two days. Hah! I’m just going to pretend it was a week, okay? We went to Yosemite Valley the next morning and saw water tumbling down mountains, snow capping mountain peaks, deer lurking amongst trees and a fox casually strolling the streets. My camera was ready to click it all. Through it all, I chatted a lot with nature. It was beautiful and serene.
