Californiatimez: Yosemite, Childhood, and Posters

Dear Self (Age 16),

Right now, being that you’re 16, you’re probably sitting in your room reading “The Andy Warhol Diaries” whilst counting the days until you can move to New York to become a high-powered lawyer. As you know, Self, I grew up in Yosemite National Park, and totally didn’t appreciate it until I was older (approximately last month). When you grow up with Yosemite Falls visible from your bedroom window, the last thing you care about is nature. Fast forward to now. After a whirlwind year of shooting a TV show and attending fancypants Hollywood parties with the Who’s Who of Whos, I was itching to get back to the woodland home I never appreciated as an adolescent. Thus, I road tripped up to Yosemite with a gaggle of gays, and set forth on a two-week vacation. So far, one of the most interesting things I’ve seen was an exhibit at the Yosemite Museum. It’s a collection of vintage memorabilia from Yosemite’s early days. This got me thinking about how charming vintage posters are. Thus, I’d like to share these with you:

I hope you enjoyed these.

Love,
Self (Age 29)
