Snake Dike
Chris and I climbed Snake Dike, Half Dome, Yosemite with our hired Yosemite Guide Bill. (By the way, Bill was excellent.) Took us 12 hours round trip. 4 hiking in, 4 climbing, 4 hiking back out. We each carried about 5 liters of water. It was an extremely challenging adventure that I will never forget.

Sadly, someone died on the cables. We were just off the mountain by about 30 minutes when it happened. We heard people screaming. It was terrible. Later we saw the helicopter land on the top of the rock. We found out about the news on Monday when the articles started appearing. There is a picture in this set where you can see the blades of the helicopter. I'm curious if the person who fell is in one of the pictures of the mass of people on the cables.

It also seems that I'm getting huge number of views on this set. I hope you enjoy the pictures. Feel free to leave comments.
