    Hello everyone,
    Slow day at work, so I figured I'd share some of my favorites from a climbing trip I took to Yosemite this past summer. All were taken with a G3 and 14-42. All feedback is appreciated and invited.

    Picture 1: El Capitan from El Cap Meadow
    Picture 2: Looking back down from the top of The Grack climb, 400ft
    Picture 3: Looking the opposite way from El Cap in the meadow
    Picture 4: The bottom of Snake Dike, the 800ft moderate route up Half Dome (the two specs on the "horizon" are climbers ahead of us)
    Picture 5: Looking back down Snake Dike on pitch 4 or 5
    Picture 6: A friendly marmot coming down from Half Dome

    Thanks for looking!

    Yeah, we camped in the valley. It was surprisingly cheap ($20/night) compared to some other campsites ive stayed in at areas like this. It is tricky to find spots though. Very awesome place to visit.
