Reflections on why you came: Better question for me is what made me come back to the trip. I say this because last year I came to WildLink. One of my reasons for coming back is I enjoyed the first one so much I wanted more. Another reason is we came to a new spot not the same one from last year. And I want to know more stories of the dam that we are going to be seeing soon.

Observations: One thing we noticed today was an exciting feeling of seeing a bear for the first time out in the woods. Another thing I noticed today if we work together we can accomplish things fast. Example: today helping PJ with firerings. Another thing I noticed is the great view we are seeing by just coming out to Yosemite and enjoying this experience that lots of people can’t experience or don’t know.

“I wonder” I wonder on how these trees are burned. I wonder if it was a natural fire or if it was a controlled fire. I wonder if it was a natural thing, how did it start? I wonder if it was a controlled fire, why did they have to burn lots of trees?

Goals: some of my goals in the future: I would like to come back to Yosemite by myself and then further in the future I would like to come with friends and family. I got out of my trip is I learned how to make a campfire. Also learned how to clean a firering.
