|Part of Upper Yosemite Falls|
|Half of El Capitan|
Walking across a frozen Tenaya Lake in a T-shirt in January was a bizarre experience.
There may have been snow and clouds, but it just seemed to add to the mystery of this magical place. We were able to see most of the outcrops we were looking for, and even a partial Yosemite is one of the most unique places on planet Earth. The picture below shows my students and their first encounter with this special place. Many of them had never been to Yosemite Valley before. Moments like this are one of many reasons that I love teaching.
