We Deserve 5 Minutes of Bliss. {Gorgeous Video}


“Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul alike.”

~ John Muir, The Yosemite (1912)

Yosemite is one of our most precious National Parks. If you have never been there, you can go there this very minute in ways that you might not even be able to experience if you were actually there!

This breathtaking  five minute film took me of out my head and put me into a healing, meditative, heaven-like realm—seriously. There are really no words to describe what was so brilliantly portrayed on video here.

This short film was captured (and then created) over a 45 day period by two amazing people: Colin Delehanty and Sheldon Neill during what would seem to have been a backpacking trip of a lifetime.

Wow. Just wow.

Let your spirit be swept away and enjoy!

Mahalo for posting this! I once spent 9 nights camping,by myself, in the middle of Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park. One evening, on the New Moon, I was the only one there. I watched the MilkyWay rise over the horizon, with the lava in Halema'uma'u Crater glowing in the distance. It was one of the most magical experiences of my life.
