  • Yosemite National Park: Hetch Hetchy

Yesterday we hiked 6.5 miles with those heavy backpacks. In the very beginning I could not believe I could hike such a long distance, but apparently, I did. the trail was full of poison oak and other pretty plants. hetch Hetchy is a really nice place to visit. Rock walls looked awesome. The lake was extremely long and wide.

I've never gone to the bathroom outdoors. I've never slept in a tent in a sleeping bag near a huge beautiful waterfall. i've never wanted to eat all the time so bad (btw, macaroni 'n' cheese was like a piece of gold). I've never been so scared of deers, who sneaked right behind my back last night. I'm definitely out of my comfort zone this week, but it feels nice any ways. I would refuse to hike that much in Ukraine for sure, because it's really tiring.
