Nothing to resent here. Just views of Half Dome all the way from the bottom of the Valley (4,000’) to Tioga Road (8,000+)! Sloshed around in melting snow and pot-holed through at points, but gained several thousand feet + of elevation. 
Cheers to living your days purposefully and in the way you would want to! .

Winter in Yosemite wasn’t much of a winter like we expected, but it was #snowproblem! We had the inside scoop on snow hikes with @schhpiels, post holing a-plenty, tiny transient snowmen, beautiful valley sunsets, and the grandest brunch that you ever did eat. Oh and sunny half dome turned snowy half dome in a matter of hours. Our cross country skiing and snowshoeing dreams will have to wait til next year 🤷🏽‍♀️❄️🥰 #ahwahneehotel #deweypoint #yosemitevalley #snowcreektrail #tunnelviewyosemite

Success is that much sweeter after a failed attempt. 🏔

This past summer, Willie and I attempted this route on a backpacking trip. It was one of those days when everything that could go wrong, did. Due to multiple hiccups that morning, we didn’t make it into the trail until the afternoon. With temperatures in the 90s, direct sunlight beating on us the entire route, over 100 vertical switchbacks to tackle, a quick climb of 2,700ft elevation in just a few miles, 40lbs of weight in our backpacks, minimal sleep the night before and a long drive to the trailhead that morning... it wasn’t a great setup to begin with. Halfway up the mountain I started showing signs of heat stroke. After another 20 minutes of me convincing my partner “I could do it”, my vision started to get blurry and Willie could tell I wasn’t ok. A mistake on this trail could lead you on a long fall down the side of the mountain, so we had to turn back. I was sick the rest of that night but what really hurt was my ego, letting my partner down and the overwhelming feeling of defeat. Many lessons were learned that day. •

Willie and I returned to Yosemite this weekend to celebrate our anniversary.

Saturday morning, we were in route to hike a different trail when he asked how I felt about trying Snow Creek again. Despite having a broken toe (🤫) I jumped at the opportunity. 
It was one of the most difficult hikes I have ever done and it was also one of the most amazing feelings to complete. The views were incredible and both of us were so elated to finally conquer the route. 
I am thankful to have a partner with an adventurous soul who pushes me to do things I’m unsure I’m capable of at times. 
I am proud of myself. For trying again. For finishing. For constantly pushing myself to be better, go further and do more. There are difficult obstacles everywhere in life. It’s important to celebrate our victories, no matter how small. This is one of mine. 🌲

Snow bridges are always a concern, and this one was no different. No wet feet, but a moment of worry, as Iowa’s snowshoe went through the #snowbridge . Still a fun time in #yosemite on the #snowcreektrail to the cabin.  #backpacking #snowshoeing #optoutside #hiking #winterhiking #knockaroundsunglasses #msrsnowshoes

The Snow Creek Trail takes you 2600 vertical feet from the valley floor to the valley rim in just 1.7 miles using an endless series of steep granite switchbacks. The descent of this trail wrecked my knee for the rest of this trip. But here’s a pretty picture and it was all worth it.⁣

Spent Christmas snowshoeing in Yosemite on Snow Creek Trail. I’ve learned that #yosemite hikes are either short, flat, meadow hikes - or straight uphill out of the valley to a gorgeous view
.
Funniest part:
When getting the backwoods permit from the ranger station, instead of the normal questions like emergency contact, tent color, pack type, etc. we’re asked “any pet chinchillas or rabbits you’ll be taking?”......what??
.
Favorite parts [swipe]:
[1] I mean, just look at the views!
[2] camp was cold. Got down to zero the last night 🥶
[3] we snowshoed to a spot our last night for dinner. Turns out it was the north face of Half Dome (see the logo from The North Face?) during sunset

My dad is nothing short of a bada**! This was his FIRST backpacking trip and he did it with health issues. But it doesn’t stop there...we backpacked ~24 miles with 3K elevation gain in 2 days on the most challenging and steepest trail in Yosemite!

The view from my hike up 1/3 of the Snow Creek Trail yesterday.  It was an ambitious and spontaneous venture as I had only planned to do the short loop around Tenaya Canyon/Mirror lake. I decided to tackle as much of it as I could after encountering a group that had just descended all 170 switchbacks from the top,  I only made it about 50 switch backs up, but was proud of what I accomplished for a pretty novice hiker.

A little catch up, as I’ve been remiss. Day 2 of vacation. Photos are few, but that was mostly because I was more focused on surviving the hike than taking pictures. And sadly the top was layered in with clouds, but I did hike Mt Zion and honestly enjoyed it, thanks to an awesome hiking partner. We celebrated afterwards with cider, pizza and crepes. Can’t beat a day like that. #mtzion #snowcreektrail #finnrivercider #cider #crepes

The glorious sunset over #HalfDome.

It felt like a long strenuous hike though the #YosemiteFallsTrail and the #SnowCreekTrail, but the final destination was totally worth it. There was no wind as one would expect at such heights; the temperature was in 70s; and with very few backpackers in that area, we were pretty much all by ourselves enjoying the majesty of #HalfDome and the beauty of #YosemiteValley that lay beneath.

Meet the #WhiteThroatedSwift - a small (and aggressive towards me) bird I encountered on the #SnowCreekTrail in #Yosemite.  I must have disturbed a nesting ground - as about 20 of these birds dive-bombed me for about 15 minutes. They were moving so fast I had to shoot everything in slow motion on my phone - and the stills are screen-grabs from the video.  They also made quite a racket - which you can hear on slide #10 (albeit in slow motion). The whole encounter was fascinating and a first for me.  I don't recall ever seeing this bird before.  Huge thanks to @benbthorne for identifying the make and model of these guys.  I couldn't figure it out - as that beak looks like a small falcon - but the body markings didn't fit. And turns out small falcons are much bigger.  So there.  This totally makes up for the empty Cooper's Hawk's nest in our backyard (no chicks this year).

What to do on top of Half Dome? Look for other trails to hike, of course. I found this 30+ switchback trail on the other side of the valley, and decided I had to climb it. I went home and found out that it's the Snow Creek Trail, and that it actually has around 100 switchbacks. So I attempted it the next day, and got this shot of Half Dome from the north. I had limited time and not the right equipment for the trail that day (not to mention summiting Half Dome the day before), so I only went about 20 switchbacks. But it's now on my short list of Yosemite hikes to do. Apparently you can do a 20 mile hike to North Dome via Snow Creek. Has anyone done this hike? #yosemitenationalpark #halfdome #snowcreektrail #northdomehike

Another great day with friends in Yosemite. Snow Creek Trail to the Snow Creek Cabin built in 1929. Truly a cabin in the wilderness. You go from the Valley floor to the rim, 3,000ft climb in only 1.7mi on this one. Got in 14.6 miles with about 7,600ft total elevation change. Great views and different perspectives of Half Dome.

On this day in the mountains the valley divided two entirely different sceneries. Thunderstorms beating over clouds rest (lightning struck only moments before I took this picture) while nearly clear blue skies filled the mountainside north of the valley behind Mt.

On this day in the mountains the valley divided two entirely different sceneries. thunderstorms beating over clouds rest (lightning struck only moments before i took this picture) while nearly clear blue skies filled the mountainside north of the valley behind mt. watkins and snow creek. it’s crazy what a day in the sierra can bring 🌩⛰🤙🏽 #mtwatkins #cloudsrest #snowcreektrail #thegoodlife

This place was magical. I wasn’t trying to not photograph other people there simply wasn’t anyone else on this viewpoint in the back country. It was certainly worth the hike! #snowcreektrail #yosemite #backcountry #hike #halfdome #views #mountains #memories #wander #adventure #dontgiveup #california #gopro #goprohero7 #solitude

The best day adventuring with one of my best friends 🖤 Once was our backyard... and now we live across the world.

📍Mirror Lake, Yosemite Nat’l Park.
🚲
We used to bike to this lake as kids and jump off the rocks. Currently, even with the rain, it was too shallow for a safe dive. I’m guessing once the snow fully melts it will be deep again. .
.

Did you grow up in a family that did adventures or are outdoor activities part of your life now because you’ve chosen it? .

I resent my face for aging
I resent my friends for changing
I resent my days for claiming

Nothing to resent here. Just views of Half Dome all the way from the bottom of the Valley (4,000’) to Tioga Road (8,000+)! Sloshed around in melting snow and pot-holed through at points, but gained several thousand feet + of elevation. 
Cheers to living your days purposefully and in the way you would want to! .

We hiked up to the top of Mt Zion via the snow creek trail. It was cloudy at the top limiting views but it’s always fun to get out in nature, especially when you go with your furry friends. 😊🐕😊 #mtzion #olympicnationalforest #snowcreektrail #nature #naturephotography #nikonnofilter #mountains #hiking #hikingadventures #nikonlove
