Went backpacking in Desolation Wilderness a week ago. This is Emerald Bay from the Bay View Trail.

Led a Sierra Club hike out to Five Lakes Basin this week. There was still quite a bit of snow on the trail.

Last week I went backpacking in Yosemite with a dear friend. Climbing Half Dome was something I had attempted 2 times prior, being denied by forest fire both times; once in 1990 and again in 2018. This time we successfully gained the summit. It was a great trip and sort of a dream come true. During the course of our hike we walked over ½ way around Half Dome. It is surprising how unfamiliar Half Dome can look from some of the different angles. I thought I would post a few of the images here.

Vernal and Nevada Falls from Glacier Point. I always enjoy looking back to see how far we've hiked. It's all down hill from here back to the valley.

One of my favorite places to hike. Great weather this past weekend and the falls are raging.
