I recently spent some time in Yosemite, one of the most incredible places in the entire world, in my opinion. And what was particularly neat about this visit is that I hiked to the top of Clouds Rest, a 9,926' peak that sits north of Yosemite Valley. This was not only an incredible experience on its own, but this peak offered a whole new perspective for me. It wasn't just the elevation, although that provided an unbelievable view, but more the fact that from Clouds Rest I was looking south into Yosemite Valley, instead of looking north from the valley floor, as I had experienced multiple times. Similar to discovering a new spice that improves your favorite dish, this novel vantage point made the already gorgeous valley even more exciting for me. A reminder to always be shifting perspective and examine things from different angles. It just might end up being better in the end.
