- Expedition: Nov 7-11, 2009
- Kingsburg HS
- Yosemite National Park. North Rim.
Being here allows my inner self and my soul to reflect beyond my limits. It gives me a feeling which I did not know of. The feeling to forget about any troubles or obstacles in life. This unknown feeling has extended the limits of my heart, my soul, and my mind. I feel extremely lucky to receive such treasure that truly belongs to no one specifically. This experience is more than a journey with a group. It has been a journey with myself. Today I stand here at Eagle Peak staring as far as my eyes can see. However the beauty of this place goes beyond its natural and physical features. The true beauty is within its essence, and what it offers. As I take another look, I engrave this sacred image in my soul, as an aid to which I will look back whenever I need peace, stability and spirituality. There truly are no words to describe the beauty and its effect within me. However I know that I will always know the essence that will always dwell in my heart, mind, and deeply in my soul.
Overall I have learned that nature is priceless and cannot be reconstructed by men. I will now keep this idea in my mind and make decisions that will affect nature in a positive way.
