My foot is still keeping me from going on big adventures but I did wander into Cook’s meadow with watercolors a few days ago.
Cook’s Meadow is a lovely spot, and easy to access. Just by circumnavigating the meadow on paved paths you get spectacular views of some of Yosemite’s most iconic rock features.
Plus you’re painting in a place that was also walked by the likes of Thomas Hill, Albert Bierstadt, Georgia O’Keefe, and Ansel Adams. That’s got to count for something.
Totally worth it, even if your painting of Half Dome does come out wonky.
