Washing The Spirit Clean

Washing The Spirit Clean

"Keep close to Nature's heart... and break clear away, once in awhile, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean." ~ John Muir

On the last morning of my Yosemite adventure, it was rainy and dingy but the storm clouds kept my interest, despite being soaked to the bone. Here in Yosemite Valley, near the base of El Capitan with Cathedral Rock in the distant background, the clouds cleared for just a few moments and the sun broke through on part of the scene to allow me to catch this incredibly vibrant image. Normally a meadow most times of the year, this area was flooded with just a couple feet of water from glacier melts, due to completing the largest record snowfall on record.
