Aug. 2020 - The glacier was so small we didn't actually need to cross that much, but if I carry an ice axe for 3 days you better believe I'm gonna use it! We overlanded for 3 days to get to Lyell and took the trail out on the fourth day.
Aug. 2020 - Most of Lyell was easy... with one execption. Right after the glacier there is a very frightening scramble up to a sloping plateau. I would say parts of that "scramble" are 5.6 free soloing moves. My dad disagreed, saying that John Muir classified it as 2nd class. Crazy great adventure either way!
I got on the news (click to see) because I decided to paddleboard down the street during some flooding.
Denise, Hillel, Adyson and I at the start of our Winter Break backpacking trip... Yes, it did rain... Yes, my cast did get a little wet.
