A large pile of rocks  Sucess!

I just remember a lot of rocks. Very cool colors though, one minute you are on red rocks, the next, you are on green rocks, then purple rocks. Somewhat crowded, but nice views.

Awesome View  Sucess!

Spectacular views all the way up! Light wind on the summit made it a perfect place for lunch.

Beating the heat  Sucess!

I had plans to hike Half Dome but 100 degree heat drove me out of Yosemite Valley up to Tuolumne meadows. Mount Dana sounded like a good dayhike. The heat had been generating thunderstorms around 1 pm every afternoon so I started before 7 am, made the summit around 9:15, enjoyed a snack and the spectacular views before hurrying back down the trail reaching my car around noon or so. I was surprised by the number of hikers I saw heading up late in the morning. It seemed unlikely they would make it back down before the daily thunderstorms started. I guess Yosemite being a national park means you get a whole lot of hikers who don't really know what they're doing.

Standard Route  Sucess!

Trail from Yosemite east entrance is in good condition. Virtually no snow. Some class 2 scrambling but not for very long stretches.

Northwest Slope  Sucess!

From Tioga Pass Entrance Station, across the meadow with almost half the route through the woods interrupted by snow. Stayed on route to just below the plateau but then freestyled to the top, partly over snow, partly one stepping-stone at a time. Passed one other soul on his way down but the two of us were the grand total to the top for the day. The wind died for a bit and a little bird joined me to add to the experience of the incredible panorama.

So Many Cairns  Sucess!

Many misleading cairns on the easiest route. You'll save time if you just pick your line up the slope and go. Great views and worth your time.

Cross Training - Up Dana  Sucess!

Up and down Mt. Dana with my bike-racing family - a little cross training between race seasons. Up the West Route from Tioga Pass. In a word... Awesome!

From Tioga Pass  Sucess!

Tagged it on the drive out after camping trip. We were the first on the summit that day, which made it special. Stupendous views in all directions. Short, intense hike was surprisingly pleasurable.

First time ove 10k elevation  Sucess!

Pretty steep climb up talus, rocks and boulders but made it up in 2 1/2 hours. Fantastic views. Worried about elevation but had no problems other than having to rest more often on the way up.
