Yosemite!!

I spent this past weekend in Yosemite national park - camping, hiking and being one with nature (excuse the cliche!). It was breathtaking! The camping was super fun - the hiking was super exciting - the experience was mindblowing!! Here are some pictures for you to see what I saw :-)

Cloud covered Yosemite Valley. El Capitan on the left, Bridal Veil Fall and Cathedral rock on the right. Somewhere down the middle is Half Dome and Sentinal Rock...blocked by clouds.

Breathtaking Yosemite valley

View of the Upper Yosemite Falls from the road. I took this shot with negative exposure and I really like how it turned out :)

Upper Yosemite falls

Aahhhh - once we setup our camp site by the river - Sri and I took a breather and this was captured perfectly by Mads.

This is life....chilling at our camp site...

The next morning.....

Good morning Yosemite! :)
