My partner in crime put some nice editing effort into making a video of one of our trips from summer 2010... enjoy!
Our plan was to do a linkup of Tenaya Peak, Matthes Crest, Cathedral, and maybe some Echoes. The morning went flawlessly on Tenaya (which this video is about).
For the afternoon, I took tons of pictures of mountain flowers I'd never seen (nice close-ups of about 20 different kinds), some wildlife (including some pheasants or similar creatures), and lots of nice climbing photos, but my hard disk crashed after I downloaded the pics! Oh well. I've got my memories for now. Luckily le_bruce came through with the digital memories.
Altitude sickness put a damper on the afternoon plans, but we made it up to the ridge of Matthes Crest before bailing off and it was overall still a good day (for me at least). I will definitely be back to do that adventure loop again. And I can see repeats of the adventure as a training circuit and just plain awesome day in the mountains for time-limited squishy-bodied weekend warriors.
