Yosemite

Sunday, May 1, 2016
I finally did the number one thing on my bucket list - I went and hiked in Yosemite!
It was the most amazing hike I have ever been on. Although I have not done much hiking (yet), it was my favorite by far. The hike was really hard and definitely made me work up a sweat, but the result at the top of the waterfall was breathtaking. There was a lot of uphill walking (which I expected), and then over two hundred unevenly paved steps that were soaked from the waterfall. It was not an easy one, but like I said, it was so magnificent and was 'worth the hike'.

When I was hiking, I accidentally rubbed dirt all over my white sweater... It showed up in all of my pictures and I did not realize until we got to the bottom!
This was taken just on the way up. Everywhere I looked was a different, beautiful sight. That was before I even reached the top of it! It really goes to show just how magnificent Yosemite really is.
Considering I have only been working out on my own (when I find the time and energy to go for runs), I was surprised that I made it to the top alive. Of course that is a huge exaggeration, but this hike definitely was not easy. But I think that if I can make it all the way up there and down, you can too! 
Before we head up to these specific falls, we did smaller hikes throughout the park. We were hiking for about five hours before doing this rigorous (and hardest of the day) hike!
 If you can get out there, I highly recommend it! I am so happy that I was finally able to cross that off my bucket list (and I will be coming back!).
Where is your favorite place to hike?
