So last week, I went to one of my favorite places in the whole wide world, Mammoth! It was just what the doctor ordered. The air was crisp, the sun was shining, the people were chipper and the scenery was beautiful as always. I decided to take my very dear friend there for her birthday. Nuzzled away in the mountains, we drank wine, ate amazingly unhealthy food, and spent as much time as possible outside. The air quality at that type of altitude is AMAZING. I always think “Oh, this is what it feels like to breathe.”With so many trees and life surrounding you, you have nothing to worry about. All your cares melt away and wait on the city line of Mammoth for you to get back 😉
While I was there, my friend took me up to Yosemite, which is only about an hour north of Mammoth. WOW! How on earth did I grow up in California (in the mountains no less) and never go to Yosemite?! Shame on me. I have had this wondrous national park in my backyard the whole time and only now at 24, am I finally seeing it. However, I am thankful for finally witnessing its beauty and it was everything I hoped it’d be.
