From Tioga  Sucess!

Took the easy way from Tioga Pass Road. Very cloudy but still great views of Half Dome.

Need to go back...  Sucess!

Hiked this from Porcupine Creek back in 2002, and at the time I was inexperienced and in terrible hiking shape and thought it was a hard hike. I've made a lot of changes since then and now think this hike would be a piece of cake. Need to go back again to conquer this 'difficult' hike, and bring some photography gear while I'm at it. Excellent views from the top!

via snow creek  Sucess!

Hiked up Snow Creek and then down Yosemite Falls trail after enjoying North Dome. There was a good amount of snow along the top. Enjoyed watching the rare treat of a bobcat stalking a squirrel near Yosemite Point Buttress.

Up from Mirror Lake  Sucess!

Fresh snow and COLD but melted off by afternoon. Looped from Mirror Lake to Yosemite Lodge via the north rim and Yosemite Falls. Also climbed Indian Rock and Basket Dome.

good time  Sucess!

I took the trail from Porcupine Creek. It's not so bad getting to North Dome, but knowing that you got to go back uphill, kinda sucks. It actually wasn't that bad going back. This would be a better hike to do later in the day, as the sun wouldn't be behind or over Half Dome. The view of Half Dome and Cloud's Rest is super!

Astonishing  Sucess!

Enjoyed the hike to the top of North Dome on a gorgeous summer Sierra day. Astonishing views of Half-Dome, Basket Dome, west down the Valley. The side trip to Indian Rock is well worth the effort too. The hardest part of this is hiking back to the Tioga Road, as there's a lot more uphill. Now one of my favorite hikes in Yosemite.

route: crest jewel  Sucess!

High winds and light rain hit us around pitch 7, just as my partner was starting the second crux (haha). He had a memorable experience. It really seemed as if a T-storm was brewing. We finished the route as fast as we could, then the sun re-emerged.

As we were hiking out on the Yosemite Falls trail, the weather worsened once again. We ended up getting pretty damp. The thunder claps made us thankful we were off the dome.

Summit as part of the Mirror to Camp 4 loop  Sucess!

Backpacked up the Snow Creek Trail and camped out on the North Rim. Great place for a nice campfire. Reached the summit on the second day but had slow going due to the late season snow fields. Camped out near Yosemite Point the second night. Great sunrise! Hiked down the Yosemite Falles trail the next day.

pretty spectacular  Sucess!

It was an awesome day hike with my girlfriend unfortunately we just got to eat lunch before a storm blew in and chased us of the summit. So we high tailed it out and went and met up with the fam for some chill time at lake tenya. Awesome trip and good memories
