My every visit to the Valley moves me, takes my breath, humbles me..

Sometimes we overlook the really stunning place it is, for, or in persuit of the climbing. So i did a little more looking this winter, 5 visits.
Post your own thoughts, or images of Winter in Yosemite..... this should be good!

Photo taken moments after the helicopter deposited me atop El Cap during the big rescue of October, 1984.



From here I humped a pig-load of gear on my way to join the edge team at the top of North America Wall to pluck off Ed Drummond.

Saturday was blue bird and sunday was one of those days that was not only blue but not a bit of wind.

It had to of been just awesome in the park this weekend.

What's up with all the snow? This is California, yano.

I love Yosemite because you can climb here all year round:

Beautiful photos! I got cold just looking at them and remembering all the weekends Frank and I camped out in Camp 4 in the snow.
The Collivers were the only other people we met there with any regularity.

Marty, thx. I thought so too. Days where climbing isn't really happening, but if you slow the pace in the Valley and hike or stop around places a bit, something unique will always rear up.
