With everything going on with the government shutdown, it’s been a huge reminder of how special these places are and how important it is to continually protect them. This shot is from a recent solo trip through the park as the last light hit El Capitan. I hope the Valley will continually be a place for us to slow down and appreciate how grand and magnificent earth really is. Huge thanks to @smartwool for making this special trip to Yosemite possible. #gofarfeelgood #yosemite #nationalpark
