YOSEMITE NATIONAL PARK
I rub my eyes and yawn, “way too early to be alive” I say to Daniel. It’s 3 degrees celsius and every inch of glass around our campervan is covered in condensation. Clean, crisp air greets us as we step outside the van. I take a deep breath, throwing my arms above my head in a stretch. Birds are singing their favourite morning song whilst I struggle to wrap my mind around waking up before sunrise. I immediately jump back in the car and start warming up the engine. We drive until the heater delivers enough air to stop my shivering and then Daniel stops. Silently cursing him, I completely forget the cold as I look to my left and see an incredible sight. A lone tree embracing sun rays as if they are giant arms delivering the warmest hug.
Our next few days in Yosemite deliver nothing short but awe-inspiring photo opportunities without bus loads of people to disturb the tranquil environment. We enjoy our time together and outside with nature, just how it should be.
