Good grief, I grew up here!  Sucess!

My folks met climbing Half Dome and their grandparents were camping here at the turn of the century! This has always been my family's home.

thanks, glaciers!  Sucess!

Wonderful place, but can be tricky to avoid the crowds--even in the backcountry.

To all the glaciers and their work. Various routes on various things.

The valley is crazy...  Sucess!

...but beautiful. I like to go in spring, fall, and winter and generally avoid summertime because of the crowds. My first visit was in August 1998 and I have been back many times since. My favorite hike is Nevada/Vernal Falls. I hope to do Half Dome someday.

Wish I Were There Right Now  Sucess!

Didn't go for the first time until 2004. Hopefully I will get to go lots from now on!

Mist Trail Hike  Sucess!

Family hiked the Mist Trail to the top of Vernal Falls. We decided to get back to the valley and raft the frigid waters of the Merced rather than continue up to Nevada Falls. The expression on my 10 yr old daughter's face as she jumped off the bridge into the river told me that we made the correct decision.

Central Pillar of Frenzy

Climbed the first 5 pitches of the Central Pillar of Frenzy in Middle Cathedral as a party of 3 on Saturday, June 3, 2006: Javier Gonzalez, Dan and I. On Sunday June 4, 2006, climbed the first two pitches of Nutcracker and rapped off as there were too many parties above climbing and too many parties waiting at the big ledge on top of P2.

Previously, climbed in 2005: Variation on a Theme, Harry Daley Route, Church Bowl Lieback, The Center Grack.

Half Dome  Sucess!

My biggest hike in Yosemite. After visits in September 1995 and September 1996 it was my third visit in Yosemite National Park.

Valley hikes

This was the date of my first valley hike, the Pohono Trail. Later, I completed the following hikes beginning or ending in Yosemite Valley -

Four Mile Trail; Panorama Trail; Mist Trail; Upper Yosemite Falls Trail; Sierra Point; Cloud's Rest; Merced River Canyon from Merced Lake. I also tried scrambling to the brink of Lower Yosemite Falls, but turned around when I encountered this fellow.

Route Climbed: Yosemite Falls Trail Date Climbed: July 6, 2005  Sucess!

It fely hot and long. Unbelievably, we saw many people still going up in the hottest part of the day around 2 pm with no water. I think people underestimate how long this trail and how much elevation is gained. Soem great views over the waterfall and down the valley. very worthwhile hike. Start in the early AM and bring water!

Route Climbed: Half Dome trail to Nevada Falls Date Climbed: August 2005  Sucess!

Glad our visit was a short one - this was not the right time to visit the Valley. My 9 year old daughter did great on the hike up after a 5 night jaunt in Emigrant.

Route Climbed: Yosemite Falls - right side scramble route. Date Climbed: 5 June, 2005  Sucess!

Fine scramble that never pushed over a hiker's Class 3. Route as described, the only trick was the (very steep) Class 3 coming off the bench which turned out to be only slightly more difficult than climbing a ladder. There is also a ducked route about 100 yards east which is more interesting and a bit harder.

We went up to the base of the wall below Lost Arrow Spire.
