Zen Blue

I – or, more accurately, Malhar – found this cairn at the top of a rock on Sentinel Dome in Yosemite.  It was just a perfect scene to capture after the admittedly short, but still a bit strenuous for me, hike to the top.

The hike itself is under 2.5 miles, I believe, but there was still snow at the top so climbing our way through the super slushy and slippery dirty wet stuff was not fun.  I almost considered not doing it because I didn’t even have proper hiking boots on at the time (a bit dumb, I know) but then I went for it anyway.  And I’m glad I did! The views from up there was great – it was a 360° vista of everything.  I took a bunch of photos but, as with most of the time we were in Yosemite, this was during the middle of the day, with harsh light, so most of the shots will probably not see the light (heh) of day.

That is a lot of blues around here recently (i mean in a good way, far better than the Monday blues that I am currently fighting against !!!)
Truly a zen shot !

Lovely! The background seems to shimmer. I’m glad you did the hike too!
