Yosemite National Park is awesome and you should visit!

So I’ve been in California for almost 2 years now and just had my first trip to Yosemite.

It was breathtakingly beautiful!

Here are some highlight pics I took with my point-and-shoot digital camera.

I have a few rolls of film to develop as well, so keep an eye peeled fro those to show up eventually!

CLICK images for a larger version of the pic.
