Yosemite National Park / June 18-22, 2011
Every morning in Yosemite we woke up, took a step outside and looked up. How can such a place exist? It's so different than what you see when you look up on the streets of NY, yet geography tells us both places are on the same planet.. the same continent even.
This is why I love to travel.. the town next door, a different state, a foreign country. Everywhere you go there is something to marvel at that probably seems commonplace to the city's own inhabitants. When you travel, see the sights, and venture home your eyes are opened to some of the draw of your own hometown.
I'm constantly making an effort to look at my home town and home city the way a traveler would see it. People travel from all over this world to see Manhattan.. that's an amazing thing. When Matt and I traveled back from California we decided to pretend we were travelers going to visit the amazing island of Manhattan, instead of travelers going home.
Yosemite, I'll definitely come back to see you.
