Wapama Footbridge Feelings

Wapama Footbridge Feelings

“I only believe in things i can see, touch or feel which is consciousness. Therefore i believe that feeling is the bridge between what we know and what we don't know now.” ~ Unknown

Approaching the Wapama Falls Footbridge in the Hetch Hetchy Wilderness of Yosemite National Park, this tree’s branches formed a canopy over the trail just before the footbridge starts. Just one week prior to my arrival here, two hikers were swept off this same bridge to their death by raging and rising waters from unseasonable high flows from snow melts. While the waters had receded to some degree over a week’s time, it was still quite deadly as the sign I just passed indicated.
