Tell Bent to climb that small hill for training
Yes, sometimes sacrifices have to be made.
That second shot looks a bit like an old Ansel Adams photo :)
PS. It looks like the weather is the same as when I visited Yosemite with my wife and daughter in 2013 - almost the same time too (Nov 8-11).
@Gally, I'll see if 'Bent can rent some gear and climb up the face. I took him up to Sentinel Dome today, which was about 1300 m of climbing in 10 km then we had to get back down again. That should be somewhat helpful.
@Bubo, I was definitely trying to copy Ansel Adams there. @Veinbuster, thanks!
You're a trooper for allowing yourself to be dragged on that trip! He owes you big!
Seriously, a “dental work trip” - yeesh. I’m so devoted and selfless.
