Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul. -John Muir

For me, nature is one of the places to recharge my batteries. I recently went with some friends for a weekend campout in Yosemite Valley. We spent one afternoon climbing to the top of Upper Yosemite Falls, which isn’t a trail to laugh at.

Here are some pictures:

Upper Yosemite Falls. Woot.

Upper Yosemite Falls and Half Dome.  (Oooh Aaaah)
