On June 12, 2010, Jer and I went on a hike at St Edward State Park in Kenmore, WA. It’s a 316 acre day use park about 20 minutes from our house. We took the Seminary Trail down to the beach (lakefront), and then followed the beach along the North trail and back to the parking lot. Great park.
Upper Yosemite Falls and walkway through Meadow.
I miss Yosemite Valley. When I think of it, I think of the way the light falls, and the crispness of color, and the smell of pine trees and the sound of water rushing over rocks. I think of trails that go straight up until I have to bend over gasping and I think of sinking ankle deep into snow, lugging my camera on my back, and dodging tourists. Sitting at a picnic table and eating pizza, or rushing for the scrambled eggs at the buffet. Thumbing through prints in the Ansel Adams Gallery or stowing my toothpaste in a bear locker. It’s just a beautiful place and I’m more homesick for Curry Village than any other place I’ve rested my head.
