Can you believe that I’ve only lived a few hours away from Yosemite my entire life and this past weekend was my first time ever visiting?!
I know I wish I would’ve done it sooner! Just the reminder I needed to not take for granted my surroundings. 🌲✨
Waking up at 5:30am was not my ideal time to start preparing for this hike, but it was so rewarding! We started the hike around 6:45am and got to the peak at 9am. I took an hour nap at the top and then we started our descent, which had us arriving back at the car by noon.
A solid 10 mile round trip hike with an elevation gain of 3200 ft!

What's the use of saying we're better at baseball than this country? We all play together. I'm playing with Venezuelans and Dominicans right now. We all play together, so what's up with saying our country is better than your country? It's stupid. I don't like it. (Quote by - Torii Hunter)

Lesson learned from doing my first multi pitch route over the weekend: hanging off the wall 400 feet off the ground the views are great but don’t do it in bouldering shoes. Yeouch. Medlicott dome with Tenaya Lake and half dome in the back ground. #tuolumnemeadows#halfdome#tenayalake
One huge learning curve for beginner backpackers is making a menu for personal trips. It’s difficult to find foods that are nutritious, tasty, lightweight, and calorically dense. One of these foods that is a backpacker’s delight is bacon. As you can see, @depude84 is just as excited as I am when the bacon gets brought out!
Where’s your favorite place for sunrise? Watching the sun come up behind Half Dome from Glacier Point is definitely at the top of our list.

Hiked 2/3 of the half dome hike in prep for next year when we have permits. It kicked my ass but if I can complete that much in the shape I’m in now, I know I can conquer half dome summit next year after a little more training! #challengeaccepted#yosemite#halfdome#goals
