Every Day Matters #100 Landscape
I didn't have a digital camera to take a photo back when I was on TOP of Yosemite Falls, since there was no such thing as digital cameras back when I was 16! I know I'm aging myself. I used an uncopywritten photo from the net to paint from. The photo doesn't do it justice nor does my watercolor - but it was amazing to be at the top of this waterfall. The hike down is 135 switchbacks so I don't recommend it to anyone who's not in shape. I couldn't do it now! But it's a good memory for me :-) Maybe one day I'll be able to handle this hike again because it's a good symbol of what Yosemite is for me: wonderful places that are away from the throngs of people. The majesty of this Park is something that I shared with my own husband and children, so the legacy of those mentors from my 16th summer lives on.
