- Expedition: Apr 27 - May 2, 2014
- Generation Green Central California Consortium
- Yosemite National Park: Little Yosemite Valley
What can wilderness teach us?
- To live without any power like our ancestors did
- How to take care of our environment to save wildlife
- The beauty in our world
If Yosemite had the chance to talk to us, I think it will tell us to look at the beauty of its nature and to see why we should still keep it the way it is right now. It will also explain about our wildlife on who lives here and needs Yosemite to survive.
Before this trip the wilderness didn’t mean a lot to me but now seeing it closer and better it means a lot, because I learned that any living thing needs wilderness to survive. I also learned that the forest isn’t just the wilderness. It can also be from the puddles when it rains outside to the dry dessert, anything that has living inside is wilderness. I believe we should all take care of our wilderness because if not, who is? Remember the wilderness is our home, too.
When I got to Curry Village I was so excited seeing how pretty it looked. When we had to hike up I wasn’t that happy because it seemed like we walked for hours. It finally hit me, the beauty, when I saw the first waterfall. After that I became more excited again knowing that there will be more beauty to it. When we got to Nevada Falls on top of it, it made me speechless. I saw nature as a different ting. It was something I never seen before. I was still worried about how camping was going to be because I never been camping. It was actually pretty fun, but it was kinda crazy in the night hearing all the noises I never heard at night before. Coming up to Quarter Dome was amazing but after all it was the best memory, being able to see all the mountains and valleys. I’m sure going to miss this place. That’s why I hope to get to come back soon. :)
