Yosemite National park in California is one of the most spectacular places I’ve ever been. The scenery in like none I’ve seen before. It’s as if the landscape is a snapshot into the very distant past, a time before humans, when nature lie undisturbed and unsullied. We hiked in an area called Tuolme quite a distance east from the much more well known Yosemite Valley. We scored amazing vistas of prehistoric valleys, jagged peaks and glacial lakes. We even caught a glimpse of the famous Half Dome, albeit from a different perspective than usual. This particular hike took 10 hours and covered 24km and 2000m vertical. A journey well worth it.
