I was first attracted to WildLink because when I was younger I used to go to Yosemite a lot with family and friends. Going on these trips has given me a better appreciation of nature. I feel like some people wouldn’t come on this trip because they don’t want to give up the comforts of their home or they might find the hikes too challenging.
Today we hiked to the peak of Cloud’s Rest. The hike was steep and challenging. I feel like I pushed myself more than I normally would’ve and I feel extremely proud of myself for doing so, especially because I have an amazing view of Yosemite as a reward. Though I was exhausted and a little nervous climbing to the top, this is probably the best hike I’ve ever been on. I don’t think I would’ve been able to do this without the motivation and support I got from the rest of the group.
