Yosemite | Rainy Day Beauty

I stood on the side of the road, the mist rolling gently through the mountains before me. Calmness. Gratitude. I had never been so glad to see a rainy day. Normally people are disappointed when rain pervades their Yosemite trip. You might normally hope for sunny skies or a classic golden hour and a beautiful sunset. But I’ve seen hundreds of photos of the same vantage points with the same clear skies at Yosemite. I hadn’t seen this particular scene: this moody fog, the gentle sound of raindrops and rustling of trees. This was the stuff. Magical, replenishing soul-stuff. And I was happy to be breathing it all in.

So fun to experience a bit of lodge living thanks to Rachel and Zach’s wedding at the Evergreen Lodge.
