Time spent in the natural world is good for the mind, body, and soul. It’s important that we connect with Mother Nature on a daily basis to help balance out the busy work/life that we’ve all become accustomed to.
Last week B4BC team rider, Mimi Knoop, Mahfia.tv’s Kim Woozy, and myself experienced a 4-day adventure in Yosemite National Park camping, hiking, swimming, star-gazing, and finding our “Yosemite Secret Spots”. A week later we’re still flying high from the nature vibes!
So this Labor Day weekend we want you to take a load off, breathe fresh air, take in the sunshine, connect with Mother Nature, and be good to your soul…
Be healthy. Get active (in nature),
Blair Young / B4BC Outreach Director
P.S. I want to give a shout out to all of the firefighters who are currently battling the Rim Fire that is greatly affecting Yosemite National Park. Thank you for your brave efforts, we’re all watching closely and wishing you a safe & successful fight.

A rare blue moon occurred while we were in Yosemite, creating spectacular night time views of the valley. Here we are having a little fun near the meadow, experimenting with photo “long exposures”. / Photo hero: Mimi Knoop
