Yo John Murr, I get you. Yosemite is beautiful valley trees and cliffs ‘oh my.’ Speaking of trees, we went on a tree walk today. Sugar pine cones are like the size of my arm! But that was all I really took home with me because I found myself preoccupied with watching climbers on the wall. I’ve never been one for climbing, but now I’m stoked to get a membership at Vertical Endeavors, and take a lead climbing course with Pat over winter break. Seriously, how cool would it be to climb Yosemite? Well, I hate to write such a short journal, but with the lesson monster approaching I need to run and prepare. Wish us all luck.
