Andrew Upchurch lives in a stunning place that most people only visit: Yosemite National Park.

Imagine just casually walking out your door every day to majestic mountains rising above a lake. For Upchurch, that’s a reality. In the short film I Live In YosemiteMegan Eleanor Clark documents Upchurch’s experience. He spends his days climbing rocks and exploring the breaktaking world that surrounds him, including the famous waterfalls. We get a look at his cozy digs, which includes the essentials: coffee, whiskey, and climbing gear. He knows how good he has it. “I didn’t expect to live here. It feels very surreal and it feels humbling because there aren’t really that many people who get to live here,” he says.
