Spent my honeymoon in Yosemite and it's honestly one of the most beautiful places I have been. It's on my bucket list to see those sequioa trees again, I brought a cone from one home the size of a football, it was proudly given to my nephew for his schools nature table.— Neil (@forward_wing) January 20, 2020
