Camped for a week at Tuolumne Meadows, Yosemite. A week with no electricity, no WiFi, spotty cell service. It was my first time going to Yosemite. I can't wait to go back. No, I didn't see any bears.

    You can drink it from this spot. This mineral water is like drinking rusty alka-seltzer. (The water is clear, the wet soil is orange.)
