This photo captures the sleeping view from our tent, where we spent the night in Yosemite Valley before starting the Snow Creek Trail to North Dome. The view of the giant trees towering above our mesh tent, speckled by stars in the sky, was beautiful. I feel this view perfectly captures why sleeping outside is so amazing.
