Good and bad times are always unforgettable. Both teach you something you didn’t know before, and that’s the beauty of exploring and finding the purpose of our existence, the purpose of life. Fortunately, the Yosemite trip taught us all something good, something very important and essential: humans will never be more powerful than mother nature – she will always wins.
Yosemite was cold, really cold, like very very cold – 20 degrees Fahrenheit (-6C), yet it was so fun and interesting. The crew spent two nights at Curry Village, in non-heated lodging, and through the two nights I could barely sleep because I couldn’t feel my feet at times. I put on multiple layers of socks, some Heattech clothing and layered up trying to sleep in a sleeping bag and multiple blankets, but it was crazy cold. Other than being very cold, things went super good.
Hiking icy trails, talking and knowing more about everyone, laughing like I haven’t for a while, throwing snow balls and starting snow fights, playing cards and board games, drinking wine and getting to know each other better.
Things were just simple yet perfect. What else could I have asked for? Not much. Just a heater during night, maybe. But aside from that, I’m really glad we planned out this trip, executed it really well, and most importantly, I’m happy that we all connected well and had a good time in Yosemite despite the crazy temperatures during the Thanksgiving week.
Most times when traveling, it’s not about what we do or where we go, but more about who we go with and how we spend every minute and hour we have together. I’m truly thankful for having caring and open-minded friends.
I’m thankful for life, love, and health. I’m thankful for having a great family and amazing friends. I’m thankful for all the challenges, opportunities and moments.
Thanks for being in my life.
