SNOOOOW's Adventure in Yosemite

Post by Vaca Russ » Tue Sep 19, 2017 8:13 am

Jon (JB) has been out bagging peaks in Yose. He has been updating me on some of his achievements.

On 9/14 he bagged Mt. Lewis.

I hope he has time to complete a full report.

Thanks,

So you went to Yose, then to SEKI and then back to Tuolumne Meadows again?

Man you are like the Allman Brothers...a Ramblin' Man! :D

JMHO,

I did, I called it "The National Park Tour". I was going to spend 2 nights/3 days to finish in Tuolumne but I was tired of the 28 degree nights so it ended up just being a big day hike out to Young Lakes and beyond with a trip up Ragged on my way back to the car. I HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend Young Lakes as an overnighter.

JB,

Why don't you post this stuff on HST? =D> :D

I found (after he texted it) this video montage by SNOOOOW on you tube:

I wish I had the talent to make a video like this. Jon, you captured a sow and her cub? Share the story!

Never heard of The White Buffalo but "The Pilot" is a great song!

Thanks,

-Russ

Russ calling me out lol. I know, I need to write up a report or 2 but thanks for putting this out there. That video was actually made by my buddy that came with me on that 1 portion of my trip..He is the brains behind the montage/video operation.
