About the blogger: A world folk dancer, an accomplished pharmacy technician, a painter, and Yosemite enthusiast with an avid passion for trying new recipes and exploring the great outdoors.
Five years ago on Christmas Eve, I took my first Yosemite trip in the Sierra Nevada. Of all our blue planet’s biomes, Yosemite offers one of the most spectacular mountain views– snowy winters, luscious flora flourish in spring and summer. But the landscape is changing.
Summers are hot and dry with frequent wild fires and cold rainless winters. I have spent enough time to see a noticeable change in the climate with each passing year.
I love everything about the high country. Its undeniable beauty simply takes my breath away, that, and the altitude. If any of you get the chance to explore such wonders, take it. And let the experience take you where it may. One that captivates you again and again like it has me.
