  • Yosemite National Park: Yosemite Valley

The trees are huge and very, very green and are one of the biggest things I have ever seen, I wanted to take a pine cone home, but there's no way I can hide it. So instead I'm taking rocks home, the best ones I can find really. The sun just came shining through and is slowly fading away. I'm using my phone to timelapse a beautiful view I'm seeing. I honestly miss home and want to see my mom again, but at the same time I don't want to leave. Yosemite is a place where you can just breathe in nature, the problems you have don't fade off, but at times you forget about it. I'll like to one day bring my mother here, just us. Even also one day maybe come here for 3 days by myself, just to explore myself and more of Yosemite. It's funny how all of the white people come here and look at us latinos differently, but at least I'm not the one that looks like a tourist, ha! I'm sitting on a sleeping mat with my cliff bar, water bottle near a bridge that has a beach effect, tomorrow I leave, can't wait! Better come back to Yosemite, Erika!! I mean it!
