Waterfalls, Wildlife, & Burger King Bathrooms

The Backpack 6Pack left civilization 5 days ago and hit the Yosemite Backcountry. After fully immersing ourselves into the wilderness we quickly left the world behind. Surrounded by rushing waterfalls and larger than life granite walls, ones perspective of their place on this planet is brought to the forefront.

To wind down and near the end of our journey is a mixture of emotions. Accomplishment, happiness, and elation is slightly muddled with a sadness that it is over. We had experienced nature to the fullest and the abrupt change back to society is somewhat overwhelming. After only 5 days all of us find ourselves behaving like we are still in the backcountry.

As we navigate our way to the airport the car becomes a constant reminder that all 6 of us have not seen a bar of soap in 5 days! A small town outside of Yosemite, Mariposa, had a Burger King and we used that as a quick stop to give ourselves a sink bath and clean some of the “fresh air” off before getting on the plane.

There will be plenty of pictures and posts to come of our trip, but until then here is a quick thought from each member of the 6Pack

Chuck Norris – Sensory Overload & Unexpected. “I completely forgot about work.”

Chick Norris – “Overwhelming Beauty and peacefulness.”

The FallGal- “My personal Heaven.”

Wicked Witch – “Time stands still” Priceless!

Doc – “It took my breath away, literally and figuratively.”

Slimms – Absolutely Surreal “A perfect photo combined with a perfect story will never capture Yosemite’s magnificence.”
