First trip to Yosemite...

My first adventure in Yosemite came when i was a pony-tailed three year old who would much rather throw rocks in the Tuolumne and Merced River than hang out in Camp Four. Patagonia didn't yet exist but Chouinard Equipment was in full swing. i returned many times to hike among the trees and stare humbly at El Capitan and Half Dome. it was easy to see why John Muir and Ansel Adams revered this place...for me, it was just a big playground...for many, it still is.
