Nature is like home. People may not realize this but we need to take care of the beautiful things this earth wants to give us. The mountains, rivers, plants, trees, and even animals are beautiful in its own way. Being here for there last couple of days made me appreciate people who have worked so hard to preserve these wonderful things. I love nature and everything it gives us, but it also makes you realize that your home and family need you to do this for them: to be strong, to dedicate all your hard work to your family and the people that you love. So what I'm trying to say is that I want to dedicate this to my family, friends, and to the people who will never get to do this.

...all of this just tells me not to ruin mother nature. It gives me peace of body and soul. I like being out here; it's a lot of hard work but it's really worth it. Its also really beautiful. This week has been really hard and tiring. I almost passed out. Someone had to go home early because of their leg. But I really liked coming up here because of the beauty Yosemite has. The thing I enjoyed the most was coming up here and watching the view and also the waterfall...A lot of people should come camping up here; you will not regret it.
