Since my first visit to the Yosemite Valley in 2006, I continue to be in awe of the towering beauty the valley holds. While I feel blessed to have visited at all, I cannot help but feel a primal yearning to return to the area.

A very beautiful body of work Kent, This place is one of the most stunning in the world. I am hoping to re visit this year, only had a very brief visit in 2009, and was captivated by the place.
