I've stumbled upon two lovely short videos about possibly my favorite place in the world: the Sierra Nevada of California, the mountains that shaped my childhood and began my love for the wilderness and for camping. One is a trailer for a film about the John Muir Trail (Yosemite to Mt. Whitney, over 200 miles). The second is a timelapse of Yosemite Valley. They filled my heart with joy this morning, so I wanted to share them. Watch them on full screen.
After studying abroad in Senegal in 2007, receiving a BA in African History in 2008, volunteering in Sierra Leone with an obstetric fistula repair program in 2008-2009, and living in Cape Town while working for a program that strives to prevent mother-to-child transmission of HIV from July 2009-2011, I returned to my native California to try living for a while in the USofA. I'm currently in San Francisco and working out my next steps.
This blog is a random collection of my thoughts and doings and does not represent the views of any of the organizations for which I have worked/volunteered.
