From May 25-28, 2012...

Last weekend, Jeff and I took a 4 day trip to the Eastern Sierras. We experienced rain, snow, and sun, plus sub-freezing temps at night. This time, instead of driving straight to Yosemite, we went at a moderate pace, stopping at the Ancient Bristlecone Pine Forest and even places north of Lee Vining, the town just outside of the park.

La semaine dernière, Jeff et moi, nous allions en voyage à la montagne sierra pour quatre jours. Il y avait la pluie, la neige, et le soleil, en plus de les températures glacials à la nuit. Cette fois, au lieu de conduire à Yosemite, nous sommes allé lentement mais sûrement. Nous avons arrêté la forêt ancienne de bristlecone pine et les endroits qui sont nord de Lee Vining, une petite ville à la éxterieur du parc.

Jeff took this photo at Cathedral Lake. He set up his camera and took continual shots during sunset. He used his wide angle lens. It was SO COLD!!

Another Jeff photo, facing the opposite way as the above photograph. Beneath the lake is the road into the Valley, just after the Meadow. To the left and down is Tenaya Lake. To the left and many, many miles away is Half Dome.

Attempting to re-instate regular posting here... I have a backlog of photos to post!


Jeff and I just got back from Yosemite Facelift 2011. Together, we picked up about 21 pounds of trash. The above photo is two shots combined using Photoshop's HDR tool and some tweaking by Jeff. Not perfect, but better than the originals!

A month or so ago, I went to Yosemite National Park to volunteer for the annual Facelift, run by the Yosemite Climbing Association. It's a massive volunteer cleanup event after the summer season. Jeff, Carla (an college roommate of mine), and I had the fortune of spending time both in the Valley and in Tuolumne Meadows. Here are two pictures from the Valley from our hike to Sentinel Dome.
