To me, wilderness is a place where no words can describe. Wilderness is everything. It is a place where you can see things differently. It is where you learn more about yourself. Wilderness is where you will see things you never imagine you could see. Wilderness is like a dream comes true.
Standing here looking at half dome is like looking into a picture. Everything is so beautiful and still that it feels like saring into a picture. I can’t believe I am one of a few people who are standing here, looking into the valley of Yosemite National Park.
When I was down at Yosemite valley, I would look up at the mountain and see people hiking or climbing. I use to think to myself, “ How can these people find energy to climb such a big mountain? I can never do this.” Now I know that it’s not energy these people have, it’s motivations. These climbers and hikers knew what they will find at the top of the mountain. They knew how they will feels and what they could see on top of the world. After joining wildlink and having this incredible experience, my first goal is to convince as [many] people as I can to visit Yosemite. I want to make people see the world from a different point of view. I want people to listen and pay attention to the Wilderness.
