My folks met climbing Half Dome, so it was sort of preordained that I would spend so much time here. I cut my teeth in Yosemite looking up to my older brother, whether he was climbing Cathedral Peak or jumping over Illilouette Creek right as it drops over the falls. No matter where I go, the Four Mile Trail plus the Panorama and Mist Trails will always be my favorite.
