In the Name of Life – a video from my May visit to Yosemite National Park. This time, I brought a friend of mine who’s never been there – and who’s never been camping, either. However, she fell asleep in the tent the moment she closed her eyes and, according to her words, had a great sleep. Maybe Nature is really where we belong…
Spring in Yosemite is the embodiment of young life full of energy and potential. What did the place teach me this time?
