Return to YOSEMITE

Oh, where to begin? Yosemite is always such a glorious experience and this trip was certainly enriching. For me returning to Yosemite every Spring for our Anniversary reminds me of all that is good and right in the world. It is written in the rushing water of the many waterfalls and the loveliness of the blooming Dogwood. As I wander with my camera, I try to slow down and tune into what Nature is saying. I am most alive when I forget about time and become one with my environment. My heart sings and I feel truly at peace. Yosemite is one of my Sacred Spaces.

Last May in Zion

Last year our plan was to celebrate our Anniversary with a grand trip to Zion, Escalante, Monument Valley and the Slot Canyons. Well, Zion started out okay, and then things fell apart. (see last year's post for the details) This past month I have finally taken the time to look at my Zion images and start to work with them. I just didn't have the heart to do it before now. I have been happily surprised to find a number of images I really like. We had some exceptional skies while we were there. The rain we had on and off really saturated the ground and made the red rock cliffs almost glow with color. One thing I remember well from that trip was how clear and clean the air was. Everything was incredibly vibrant.

This year we are returning to our beloved Yosemite for our Anniversary. It is a healing and sacred place close to our hearts. I am looking forward to the experience of being there again.
