Epic Rockslide!

Making a long story short. I was in Yosemite for a discussion on diversity and inclusion with non-profits, government agencies, and outdoor recreational leaders. On our second night camping, a thunderous rock slide occurred that echoed through the entire park. It was by far one of the most bone-chilling and amazing moments I ever had camping. And I’m pretty sure the guy who base jumps with his dog died while we were there. He wasn’t affiliated with my group and i found out later after his death was broadcast by the outdoor industry.
