In August my son, my BF, my sister, her partner and a bunch of friends rented a cabin in Yosemite. The main goal of that trip was to hike up Half Dome. For multiple reasons I thought it was best if I took the time to relax in the cabin rather than do the hike - besides I hiked up Half Dome last May!!! Anyway, my son, my sister and all the rest did the hike and I finally got at least some of the long awaited pictures of my son from my sister :roflhard: I figured I’d share them with you guys
Here he is a bit before starting up some major switchbacks on the way to Half Dome - Half Dome is looming in the background. When my BF and I did this hike last year we wanted to climb up at sunrise so it was very dark when we got to this spot. I remember clearly coming around the corner and seeing that humongous rock in shadows. My heart skipped a beat and we both gulped hard and thought “What are we crazy?” :roflhard:
Now - here he is at the base of Half Dome, with my friends Franky and Ana (Franky’s on the left - Ana right above him). Look at all those people! That’s insane!!! I can’t say I liked the idea of him going up when there were so many people log jamming the cables, but he made it up and back down and is safe. Whew!!! I’m just glad I wasn’t there. When my BF and I went he was the 1st up the cables that morning and I was the 2nd - there was one guy at the bottom and he waited until we were completely up before he started on the cables. It was perfect!!!
And here he is being very silly! He’s calling me on that phone. I told him to call me when he’s about to go up, when he’s on top and when he’s heading back to the car
And finally here he is starting on the cables! I don’t have any of him on top yet! I am patiently waiting for those now :nails:
