What makes the Wilderness sacred to you?
Starting the backpacking trip was extremely exciting. We were able to start at Glacier Point and admire the view. It was amazing! While hiking I had this enormous smile on my face. It was a great challenge but I liked it. The feeling of being in a cloud, the sound of the mountains, the feeling of the air, the smell of the rain brings soothing peace to my soul. Looking at the wilderness makes me want to stay and then that is when I realize I am on Half Dome's shoulder.
