Ascent Trip Report

Date is accurate to within +/- 5 years.

This was a day trek on a week-long YMCA camping trip in Yosemite. I was a camper back then, not staff. :-)

We left the Group Camp at daybreak and made our approach via Happy Isles and the Mist Trail. Returned via the same route and made it back just in time for dinner.

It was a long time ago, but memories and square 110 photographs (ha!) are all fantastic.
