Our first day walking and hiking to our camp spot it was really challenging and hard but even though we struggled we accomplished something I made it.

Today on our hike I experience a lot of new things and saw the beauty of mother nature. When I was hiking the thing that came to my mind was how beautiful Mother Nature is and the wilderness of Yosemite and maybe other places. It made me think what im missing out on back home and I know I don’t get to see these. Amazing things took a lot of work and walking 8-9 miles to Indian Arch. Along the way we saw snow and other interesting stuff. We saw waterfalls, little creeks and jelly cup a new type of plant. I’ve seen a lot of magnificent things I really don’t wanna leave on Friday and it’s just Wensday. Today was also my first time pooping in the wilderness pretty cool. Also best natural toilet paper is snow. :) Once you get to try it it’s not bad. When we were at Indian Arch the view was amazing, awesome, fantastic. :D These memories I received from beauty will always stick to me and I can’t wait to tell everybody about it. (:

Each Day

Each day passes and each day awakens. Every day experience in the wilderness takes you somewhere new if not rejoys your mind. From the small little grind of rock to sand to the highest tree or mountain in the forest. The experience is magnificant if you watch and see. Walking or climbing takes you some where new. Once you reach the top you know you accomplished what you start. Look around and see what you can find. The everyday beauty of each day. Yes it’s amazing. Know it’s your turn and tell your world. My experience today was amazing breath taking and more. But mostly sad because tomorrow we leave. Yes missing family and home in the city but being out here changed me and I don’t wanna go home. I wanna stay to see the beauty I saw and the ones hidden to me. But hopefully one day I come and see the beauty and wilderness im missing when im at home. :) but today went hiking across the river to the other side of the mountain range to fixing fire places to keep safe. Saw some interesting stuff like an old fire place and dug up something interesting like an old stove really surprised me. I was amazed. Once we met PJ and got to help her out. We at lunch and played a fun game even though some things were not right I still had fun. We got to see a deer it was sooo cute I loved it. (: We got back to our site and read a cute story know im writing in my journal and staring at half dome mann.---. Now im going to miss this day going to memorize it forever. (:
