Yosemite Peaches Project

Welcome to the Yosemite Peaches Project. Yosemite Can O Peaches is the title of a Radio Podcast and Blog by John P. DeGrazio.

Yosemite Peaches Project

The Yosemite Peaches Project was created in 2017 as a way to document stories of contemporary artists, musicians, athletes, and every day explorers in Yosemite National Park because everyone has a story to tell. My goal is to meet with individuals to give a voice to each story in a recorded interview as they explain the profound effect Yosemite had on their life. The peaches represent the rewards of their journey. Join me as I explore the trails of Yosemite with local experts as we share our can o peaches and the sweet rewards of Yosemite National Park.

The First Can O Peaches

I had my first can o peaches on the summit of Mt. Rainier with Adventure Buddy Ed Chao back in 1997. After I asked a local woman at a Sea-Tac information kiosk for one piece of advice about the climb, her reply was simple. “Go buy yourself a can o peaches. It’s the sweetest reward you’ll ever taste on top of a mountain.” She was speaking from experience. A few days later, Ed and I found ourselves on the summit of Mt. Rainier with our own can o peaches giving thanks to this kind woman for her sage advice.

For years, I told that story before learning the true meaning of the peaches. Today, I realize that regardless of reaching any summit, the adventure is the can o peaches. Exploring nature and discovering its beauty while achieving self growth is the true reward. The peaches symbolize those sweet rewards, and they taste even sweeter when shared.

I invite you to enjoy this site as I share sweet stories from the trails Yosemite National Park with adventurous souls on my Yosemite Can O Peaches Blog and Radio Show.
