YOSEMITE, CA - Three day backpacking trip with the Southern Yosemite Mountain Guides (SYMG) along the north rim of Yosemite Valley with views of Yosemite Falls and Half Dome.
LONGS PEAK, CO - A classic pre-sunrise start to gain the summit of this popular 14'er on Colorado's Front Range near Boulder.
After lunch, we continue our descent into Cloud Canyon and onto our next objective, Copper Mine Pass.
Back on the main trail, heading down into the valley from the pass, a new river starting to form under my feet.
Finally cresting Centre Pass we stop for lunch and look down into a branch of the Spey Valley ahead.
