GoetzAllan GoetzMr. JenningsExpository R&W P.16 October 2014goetzallan@gmail.comYosemiteI have been camping all my life and I love it. Since I was born i have been going to places all around California, From camping on the beach at Silver Strand down in Coronado to Anza Desert state park, But my favorite of them all Yosemite national park. There's something different about Yosemite that makes it perfect place in my eyes.It could be the way you are away from dirty civilization, how you're surrounded by massive mountains that touch the clouds and with water falls that have the freshest water you can get. Or maybe when how you can never get bored there's always things to do like going swimming in freezing cold water that's as clear as glass or the infinite amount of bike rides and hikes you can go on.Yosemite is a place I have been going to almost every year since I was born. Camping at Yosemite is my neighbor hoods block party. It all starts at 4 am when several families on ...view middle of the document...

The many things you can decide to do are endless from hiking to see a waterfall or to get on top of a mountain and feeling like you're at the top of the world being able to see everything. Waterfalls don't get much more beautiful than in Yosemite with 4 completely different waterfalls I could and haven't got bored of seeing them and hiking to them. Vernal falls has the most water running down it, it looks like a mini Niagara Falls on the side of a mountain. While walking up the two mile long trail, sometimes sprinting to test my self, you are enclosed by pure nature seeing the mountain side slowly closing in on you every step you take and the raging river hundreds of feet below thats flowing away from the falls. Once you reach the base of the falls you are overwhelmed by the size of the falls and soon to be mist it creates. most people would just stop at the base of the waterfall and call it a successful trip, but at Yosemite you are rewarded if you explore and be more adventuress. Being able to go to the very base of the waterfall and swim in the pool of water right below it or shower under the thousands of gallons of water it pours over every second is what makes yosemite a perfect place. After spending hours visiting one of the many waterfalls your day isnt over yet. Going back to camp and hopping into the river to relax while you tube downstream and staring at the stunning views you have of the mountains surrounding you creating the valley you are in. Once that's over you can go into the small town to have dinner or go back to camp to create one of the best meals you've ever made using your camping stove and then eat it around the fire you made with your bare hands, feeling accomplished that you made it. but Your night doesn't have to over just yet to. walking through the pitch black woods with just a flash light can give you the thrill of the hunt, the adrenaline that many people such as I enjoy feeling. hearing sounds come from places you can't see, occasionally getting terrifying close with bears and other wildlife and then trying to find your way back to your campsite to then fall asleep and dream about the perfect day you had to only be awoken the next morning by bright yellow sun to start another day just like the last. That is the place that I am perfectly content with.
