    I spent the weekend in my beloved Yosemite and loaded episodes 11, 12 and 13 onto my iPhone for the drive up from LA. Episode 11 was the perfect soundtrack for the transition from my busy life at home to life in Yosemite Valley. The drive back to LA from a few days in Yosemite tends to be a bit of a bummer, so I saved Episodes 12 and 13 for that…and as sorry as I am to hear about your run-in with that boulder, it made me laugh out loud! Glad your OK.

    I’m really enjoying your podcast so far. Montana sounds awesome, and I’m adding that destination to my list of must-gos for sure. The wildlife in Yosemite is much more elusive…you’re very lucky if you see a bear anywhere near a road. To see bears and bison and wolves all in one vista…iI can see why you’d run out of words. Thanks and keep on doing what you’re doing! Good luck!

    • Wow, Ed…Yosemite! That was my choice! I have a “minor” obsession with all things Muir and I would love to spend a few months…or years traipsing around Yosemite. Thanks for the encouraging comment and I’m so glad you got a laugh out of it. We’ve had more than our share as well. How’d you find us?

      Thanks again!

    I think I was searching for backpacking podcasts on iTunes…which reminds me, I need to go leave a rating for you guys.

    After my first visit to Yosemite, I read Muir’s “My First Summer in the Sierra” and I realized I shared his intense soul-attachment to the place. In fact, I think the book sort of made me realize that the desire I’ve always had to see all of the “wild places” in the world is sort of misguided. Now I think it’s more important to get to know a place like Yosemite in a deeper way, instead of just rambling through it like I do the rest of my life, never really paying much attention.

    Looking forward to hearing more of your adventures!

    • Ed, we’re kindred spirits..you and I. One of the most important things I’ve learned in the past year is the value of contemplation. I intentionally park my truck in front of a hemlock when I arrive at work in the morning. The time I spend studying, gazing at the the branches, needles, cones…is time well spent. It brings about a sense of gratitude and cultivates a quietness of spirit in me that seems to be changing me from the inside out. Go deeper. Looking forward to hearing more of your adventures as well. Thanks again for the comments and in advance for the review in I-Tunes!
