To me, Yosemite is my favourite place in the world. Sometimes when I'm fishing, I'm thinking of skiing, or when I'm skiing, I'm maybe wishing I was caving, or when I'm working, I'm wishing I was ..... doing just about anything else!

But Yosemite is THE one and ONLY place on the face this great planet Earth where when I'm there, I'm not wishing I was anywhere else.

How can I share my passion for the place? Too much passion, too few words. Either you get it, or you don't. If you enter the Valley with your face pressed against the glass of the bus's window while you stare up at the sublime bulk of El Capitan, then you might understand. Doesn't matter how many times I've climbed it, every time I sit in the meadow, I just stare up at The Big Stone and thank God that he made such a bitchin' hunk of rock!

I love the smell of the bay leaves. My memory of Yosemite is so linked to that aroma that I can go into a grocery store, unscrew a jar of bay leaves, close my eyes, take a whiff, and imagine I'm in The Valley.

What else can I say but,

Yosemite's bitchin'
Yosemite's "it",
In two simple words,
Yosemite's The Shit!

Cheers, Pete
