Yosemite Backpacking

Spent 2 nights in the park and camped on North Dome and Yosemite Point.  Both offered incredible views.  The first night a little storm rolled through right at sunset which made for some crazy sights….rainbows and what not.  The waterfalls were flowing, wildflowers blooming, and chipmunks a chippin’…MoNat at her finest.  (shouts out to A-Lish)

First two attempts at star trails.  These were both about 10 minute exposures on separate nights.  Excited to try it again.
