Three days deep in the chaparral of Yosemite.

We departed at midnight from my humble suburban abode; a band of weary, restless, overworked, and underprivileged thrill seekers. After a brutal 5/6 hour drive, we arrived in the Valley where we waited in line for a spot in the only first-come first-served campground: Camp IV. There were 36 spots available, and the last member of or group was number 36, but when the ranger arrived to dispense the passes that allocated spots, 4 of our group where either getting supplies from the car or in the restroom. Instead of waiting out for last minute departees that would relinquish their spots to us, we took the advice of a group of hikers ahead of us and stayed at Tamarack Flat, a campground about 30 minutes outside of a valley with a gnarly 3 mile Inlet. The camp itself was very homey and laid back, with far less regulation than anywhere in the valley, making it a natural home for our rowdy bunch. We ate a quick meal, took a couple shots, then slept because the drive was ridiculously draining. At around 3pm everyone woke and we began a small excursion into the open country behind camp in search of a creek (which we later discovered ran right through camp). Directed only by a map and a compass, we scurried north, each of us evident that we were setting foot where few have set foot before. Pinecones where scattered everywhere. The sight and smell of a recent fire resounded on the ash-laden trees. It was a beautiful sight, and the absence of phone service assured our appreciation. After failing to find an active stream to the North, we headed back, this time descending the amazingly steep rocks we had ascended previously.

Our age group is bent on conspiracy theories and supernatural philosophies that make the government out to be this oppressive, ethereal group of people out to get you. Here&#8217;s the truth. We&#8217;re lazy. plain and simple. Instead of voting and becoming involved in the democratic process, We&#8217;d rather sit at our laptops and read about the &#8220;illuminati&#8221;, parading around like we live in a broken system. There is a progressive system for change that, while far from perfect, works given the right amount of involvement and engagement, and it&#8217;s called voting. The sooner we figure that out and take grasp of the policies that will govern our futures, the better we will be able to define ourselves as the generation that did something. I don&#8217;t know about you, but I don&#8217;t think it&#8217;s ok for the Coke Brothers to dictate what the woman in my life can do with their wombs, or for some NRA gun nut to justify murders at a place of education, or for the meat packing industry to abuse immigration policy so my paisanos can work on their farms for dirt wages.
