Massages in Yosemite

The massages were Great, they made sleeping on rocks and pine cones all the more bearable.

Just before the winter snap in Sierras, we enjoyed our breakfast on the nearly dry river, hiked through the hills with the descending deer around, and practiced our rope skills on a plainly unclimbable boulder.

Protected Bouldering in Yosemite

This weekend we enjoyed a nice short car camping trip in Wawona with Tripp, Karen and Kira. We (the girls) enjoyed a river swim and rope swing, and we (all) walked many miles of trail throughout the Mariposa Grove, hearing a tree fall at 15:37 while on the park boundary trail, 2013-05-11. We made and cooked pizzas in celebration of the end of Andrew’s proclaimed Pizza Week  and then spent some time setting protection for a few very-very short climbs. These climbs included two boulders (5.8) (with protection) @ 37.57887, -119.67930 and an attempt to climb Jacob’s Ladder (5.10c) in the valley – though found it to be beyond our skill-set.
