- Yosemite National Park: Sunrise Lakes and Clouds Rest
My first backpacking trip turned out to be better than I thought it would be. Not only did I enjoy myself, I learned about history and how to survive out in the woods. I also had a lot of time to think and gather my thoughts. Being out here allows you to just put your worries away and be happy. Being out here helped me realize things I took for granted and made me more apriciative of what I have. I was also amazed by how different people around here are. they are extremely kind and just fun to have around. Being in the wilderness made me feel peaceful.
