My personal favorite. Pictures from my first trip to Yosemite National Park.

preston, joe, and pete walking toward mirror lake

mirror lake reflecting mount watkins


walking back from mirror lake

the merced river with falls in the background

the merced winds through the valley

our campsite

our first view of yosemite valley

ribbon fall and el capitan

team america with our destination in the background: yosemite falls

on the strenuous way up we had this great view of half dome

upper yosemite falls

skp resting at the top

life between granite

the spray from the falls kept this part of the trail cool

the crew prepares for another day of adventure

vernal falls

skp on the mist trail

hiking this trail was like diving into a cold lake

looking back toward the mist trail on our climb to nevada falls

water rushing over the edge

nevada falls

looking down on the trail (those specks are people)

skp and me above nevada falls

my feet above violent water

illilouette falls with liberty cap in the background

looking down on nevada and vernal falls from across the valley

half dome

past glacier point there was a little snow on the trail

upper and lower yosemite falls

we stopped by bridal veil falls on our way out
