  1. Very nice, Bubba! Yosemite figures prominently in my family too. My grandfather did the first ascent of the Royal Arches. A little later, he and his buddy had a theory that two experienced climbers could get an inexperienced climber up anything, so he took my Grandma climbing (not sure just where) for their second date. Someone dislodged a rock and broke her ankle. But she married him and kept hiking, even though she was never again to be talked into a technical climb. By the time I was born, my family was mostly spending time at the cabin on Upper Echo Lake, but we’d get to Yosemite on occasion. Hiking to the top of Yosemite Falls is the first really big hike I can remember.

    • That is really cool Jackson! I love the little bits of history like that and seeing how Yosemite has silently, grandly influenced people’s lives. I’d love to meet up with you there some time (or anywhere else, for that matter)!
