    I really enjoyed reading this At Home post, Adri! Thanks so much for sharing! I particularly found it interesting to read about your trip to Yosemite after hearing Matt rave on about it haha! I love your photos, I remember Matt telling me how much he regrets bringing a shitty broken phone to Yosemite because he couldn’t take amazing photos (I still think he did though!)

    Who knew that the name Yosemite came after killer? Haha! Thats super cool (but hardly describes such a beautiful place!)

    I definitely will be making a trip to the West in a year or two! Looks like an incredible place 🤗

      I read Matt’s entries and I also loved his photos. He had better views because he hiked at certain spots. I couldn’t hike the trails because of the not-so-strong senior citizen parents, plus my brother is a worry wart about them too. I was hoping I’d get to hike at least near the top of the North Dome and see the entire valley, but I knew that was impossible haha! Maybe next time!

      I think it’s because the views and the spots of the valley are so “breathtaking,” it kills you because of its amazing scenery LOL. But the name really came from a now extinct native tribe that was probably as violent and brutal as the Aztec tribes of ancient Mexico. Probably the Yosemite tribe was part of the Aztec tribe, seeing California used to be part of Mexico LOL.

      The problem with the way California has been perceived by non-Californians is that they make it synonymous with the L.A. city scene, the glitzy Hollywood/Beverly Hills scenes, the beach/surf scenes, and lately, Silicon Valley and its “super-advanced” (we’re far from being “super advanced” really LOL) technology. Historically, what I wrote about in this entry is the real reason why so many people flocked to California and make their marks here. Natural, out of the world scenery such as Yosemite is one of the main reasons why all the techies and yuppies made our home state as their new haven of innovation. And of course, the academic reputations here (with colleges and universities were some of the best in the world), and highly liberal politics here too.

      There is another place that I want to feature here, but I may just push it to next year. It’s a small town establishment known as “early Hollywood.” The best part of this “early Hollywood” town is that it’s only located some 10 minutes from my house. :D
