Time Traveling in Yosemite National Park

California is a wonderland for dreams and dreamers alike. Here they find their own place in the world… to imagine, stand, and soar. The air is dry yet carries a tinge of hope with it. The vast expanse fills your heart as you start to unravel the hidden wonders, one curve on one freeway at a time.

And if California is the wonderland then Yosemite National Park is the much-deserved crowd puller. This 1200-square-miles U.S. national park is on many’s bucket list and for a damn good reason.

Yosemite is an ode to raw beauty undisturbed by tides of time. With its hypnotic waterfalls, deep valleys, giant sequoias, grand meadows, this land gives you a traveler’s rush (if that’s even a term). Every season uncovers a new side of Yosemite.

You’ll always find something to do here, whether you’re visiting the park as a newbie or a seasoned traveler.

This year I had the most gratifying pleasure to explore Yosemite’s diverse wilderness with my family… for 3 whole days. Though this period allowed me to see only a glimpse of Yosemite, I left it behind as a happy traveler.

This photo blog is my tribute (and guide) to Yosemite that continues to shower us with nature’s honest-to-goodness charms.

I could stare at this view forever… | If you squeeze your eyes, you see Tenaya Lake in the lower mid-right part ©

Yosemite National Park is a gift to us humans chained to a world run by our fingers, typing away. It’s the perfect cure for our eyes… strained from our itch to stay connected every moment of our life.

Almost like a time travel machine, Yosemite takes us back to how we all were meant to live and perish, in the midst of an unforgiving yet kind wilderness.
