Yosemite National Park, California
I was laid off from my job last November, and I decided to take a couple days to just get away. I went to Yosemite and took a day to drive around the Yosemite Valley and just stop anywhere I wanted to take a photo—which was many stops because there are so many beautiful spots. I was reminded this day to enjoy the scenery along the way, not just getting there. A pretty basic lesson, but such a great reminder. Yosemite was my breath of fresh air.
