Entered the Yosemite Wilderness. I didn’t see anyone on the trail all day. The mind settles into a quietness when you hike all day alone. I love how it feels. The stillness.

Around dusk, a bear wandered near our camp, and it was so fun- he’d never seen a bear before outside the zoo. He was so captivated, and watched it spellbound. What a treat to see such enthusiasm in someone else. The bear wandered off and we didn’t see it again. The bear canisters were untouched in the morning.
