Surprise! I went to Yosemite on Sunday with Binka’s relatives. It was pretty awesome.
We scrambled up to the base of El Capitan from the valley floor. It was maybe a 30 minute scramble over a mix of easy forest terrain, steep hills, and, giant steep boulders! It was pretty terrific.
Boulder Scramble, We're almost there!
