One of my biggest regrets about living in California for six years is that I never drove to Yosemite National Park, which was a mere 4.5 hours away. What was I thinking?
And time lapse videos like this don't make me feel any better.
It's a small comfort knowing I'll be spending a week in the magnificent Colorado Rockies in September, but still. I'll have to carve some time out of my life and visit Yosemite. And Yellowstone. And Antarctica, and Denali, and and and.
So much planet, so little time.
