High up on Glacier’s Point in Yosemite National Park, the fog rolls across the landscape like an eternal wave and brings with it a tranquil silence.
Yosemite is best known for it’s amazing hiking opportunities and beautiful views that go on for miles. It’s usually visited on a clear and blue day. However, a late-Spring visit with my good friend Ned Dishman found the National Park shrouded in gray fog and white snow.
Park patrons were few and far between. That’s fine, it made the silence of the fog that much more tranquil. Just me and the California Redwoods. I loved watching as the fog weaved in and out of the base of these giant trees creating spectacular silhouettes.
So where did all the vacationers go? Maybe they had taken off for warmer and more tropical destinations. I once heard about a beautiful place on a Moroccan island called Tenerife Teide National Park in Tenerife. Located just off the coast, I’m just waiting for my buddy Ramzey to invite me to his family’s retreat so I can find the best Tenerife flights and check it out.
Your random facts of the day: Tenerife is the largest and most populous island of the seven Canary Islands, it is also the most populated island of Spain. About five million tourists visit Tenerife each year, the most of any Canary Islands.
