Whitney Next  Sucess!

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.

What?!?.......Are you For Real?!?......I'm Engaged!!!

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 I remember being in 7th heaven & completely surprised that day!!! He couldn't have picked a better place!!!

Magnificent Views  Sucess!

We stayed at Tioga Campground so we got an early start. Glad the snow was mostly gone.

Use trail in October  Sucess!

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.

NW Slope/West Slope ("Standard Route")  Sucess!

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 =/

Standard Route  Sucess!

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.

Great for the Views  Sucess!

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.

Nice Hike  Sucess!

Nice, if steep, hike to the top. Best part was approaching the top and meeting a family on way down: Me: "How far to the top?" Them: "You're close." Me: "Define 'close'." Them: "One minute." Me: Right answer!" Great views of Mono Lake and eastern half of Yosemite NP.

Bay Area Hangout  Sucess!

Amber and I were first up that day as far as we could tell. People started to filter on the the summit about 20 min after us. Almost everyone was Bay Area so we joked it was the new lunch hangout. Awesome view! Our first Sierra Peak!

Verry Coll  Sucess!

Very cool. Did Boundary Peak in the early morning and headed off to do Mt. Dana in the evening. About reached my limit physically but the absolutely gorgeous view from the top of Dana made all the pain
worth it. This is definitely a must for Yosemite lovers.
