Summer break just ended and I thought I’d share a few pictures from my adventures! In early July I took a short break from training to explore the National Parks out West and the trip was absolutely breathtaking. Enjoy!
The calm before the storm… Adventure awaits!
First stop! Muir Woods outside of San Francisco… Gorgeous!
Next up? Yosemite! And the camping begins!
The start of the 16 miles hike up to Half Dome and back… Beautiful and challenging!
View from the top of Half Dome… It was a bit treacherous!
The first of many short hikes around Yellowstone…
Did some say “Bison!!!”? They were everywhere. So neat!
Morning Glory in all her glory!
Next park? The Grand Tetons.
The reward for climbing an unmarked (and scary) “social” trail… Delta Lake!
First hike in Zion National Park: Angel’s Landing!
Permit required!!! Our last big hike required a few more skills and a lot more equipment.
First time canyoneers!
The reward? A beautiful section called “The Subway”.
Did I mention it was a little cold? I should’ve brought my wetsuit!
