Lucky Me!!!! I'm heading out at 5:30am with FJ & Mikey Mike. Our friend Julia will me us tomorrow evening. Tomorrows run will be Curry Village to Mirror lake to the Snow creek trail to North Dome over to the top of El Cap where the climbers summit down to the Falls trail through Camp 4 and back to Curry.
GOD I miss the Valley...
El Cap with Half Dome in the distance. Day 2 will be a run from Curry to the top of Half Dome out to Clouds rest back down to Curry. Day 3 will be Curry to The 4.7 mile trail up to Glacier point out to Taft point back to Glacier point on to the Panarama trail to the JMT junction and back to Curry.
I'm just hoping that the weather will be good. There is a 30% chance of rain Saturday.
Yosemite is such a magical place for me, my heart flutters when I think of Yosemite. My Mother had never been to Yosemite. I took her on my 3rd trip there in 95 before I was even a runner. I thought the Valley floor was Yosemite. I never thought in a Million years I would go up to Half Dome, or climb El Cap ,or Fast pack the Sierras ,or run a hundred miles with a 7 pitch rock climb at mile 57. Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would become who I am today.
Yosemite is the place I went to mourn my Mothers passing. I went alone in search of who and what I would become with out her around. It was during this time I saw the beauty. She took a tour bus up to Glacier point and often told me how much she loved that spot. I had never gone up to Glacier point until after she died. Whenever I visit the valley I run up to Glacier point in memory of her. I always feel her energy strongest when in Yosemite.
