wyopeakMikequake day  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Oct 17, 1989


Mt Dana was the first 13,000 peak I ever climbed. I had spent the night at one of the campgrounds below the pass and it was a lovely day. I remember when I returned to my truck I felt it shaking a little bit. I thought it strange that it would shake when there was no wind. When I returned to Bishop where I spent the night, all TV channels were full of coverage of the bay area earthquake. I had actually felt it near the summit of Tioga Pass, it was humbling to think of just how much power a quake has, pretty incredible.

fatdadOne of my personal faves  Sucess!


I've done the trail a few times now and absolutely love it. The wildflowers, the marmots, looking down at the glacial lakes in Dana Canyon. I love the high country.

Date Climbed: Aug 27, 2009
Departed South Shore Lake Tahoe at 7am and drove to Tioga pass. Parked outside Yosemite entrance and was climbing before 10am. Climb was exactly what I expected. Perfect for testing my ability to handle altitude (over 13k feet) while testing recently damaged knee. Not the most scenic hike I have made but well worth the time.

Yes, it's true he got down on one knee right here.... at the top of this peak!!! The stars aligned for us... thank goodness for no altitude sickness. Though sometimes I wonder about that, perhaps it was the altitude sickness that made me say yes....lol. I remember being in 7th heaven & completely surprised that day!!! He couldn't have picked a better place!!!

Date Climbed: Oct 18, 2008


It was a very enjoyable hike, even though the cold air and some headache made it a little more difficult. Very soon after the treeline ended the alpine views were stunning.

requiemNW Slope/West Slope ("Standard Route")  Sucess!
Date Climbed: Jun 20, 2009


despite my partner's AMS causing dry heaves from the descent all the way back to TM campground (and not stopping until we got back to 4000 ft outside the park), great success! taught us the value of acclimation before our bid for Shasta... glad we did this rather than Lassen as a warm-up! note to self: traveling from sea-level to 13,000 ft in 18 hrs does not treat some people well =/

Started at 430 am. Well worn trail up to plateau then fairly easy to follow use trail to summit. Large snowfields made descent easier. Observed mountain finches on the snow gleaning frozen insects carried up by the high winds.

I was told the day we did it was the anniversary of John Muir looking up to Dana from below and refering to the area is the "Range of Light." Although we made good time it really felt like I was going in slow motion all the way up. It made my birthday the best I have had in a very long time.
