I remember my first trip to Yosemite it was so awe inspiring and had a profound effect on me. While on that trip there was a one man play in Yosemite Village where the actor Lee Setson would “become” John Muir in a very powerful way. Hearing John Muir’s message on nature, man and the spirit of Yosemite connected with me deeply. I think it planted a seed for me to find the authentic transcendental power in nature.
On a recent trip to Yosemite I had a magical moment where for about 25 minutes a storm system (part snow/part rain) danced through the valley and around the the iconic granite peaks.
