i had never seen snow
// just letting that sink in for a beat so anyone reading can really understand my obsession and awe of what i experienced for my first time in one of the most photographically inspiring places i had ever seen mixed with... snow... the first time... in my life.
// my alarm went off at 3am. i was so excited i hardly slept. the drive up was a mix of excitement and hunger (what do you mean NOTHING is open at 5am... in the tiniest little town ever) but, as soon as the snow started to fall, i honestly didn't even care. standing outside at the gas station and seeing the snow in the beam of the street lamp had me smiling like a kid.
// we had no clue where the hell to go in the total darkness being that it was both jen & my first time to yosemite but, we grabbed a map & figured it out. both of us were dying to get out of the car after the three hour drive when the sun started to creep up & it was ... well, beautiful.
