Alex Johnson Shares a few Words About Her Recent Trip to California

An excerpt from "Westward Escape" by Alex Johnson
"There’s something magical about Yosemite’s beauty. It doesn’t make you forget your troubles entirely, but it sure takes your mind off them for a while. Inspired by recent events, I had a deep desire to do everything when I arrived. No way was I going to keep my feet close to the ground this time. I needed to go up, as high as I could, to be nearer to the stars. The first thing we did was summit Cathedral Peak in Tuolumne. It’s about eleven thousand feet high, and six pitches of climbing."
