MY WEEK IN PHOTOS: MARCH 7 – 14, 2016!
Community service day at work and a four day adventure in Yosemite with some of my best friends. Includes a snow day, an “oopsies we got lost” experience, and a gorgeous (slightly strenuous) hike to see Upper Yosemite Falls.

Enjoooy!

Woke up on Monday morning to the sound of thunder and lighting. Tweedy was just staring at me, shivering (he’s freshly shaved). We snuggled and listened to the pouring rain….

Untitled
Love the rainy days.

Untitled
Untitled
Look how clear it is! I wish we had more rain, we’d have less smog.

Untitled
Looking super sporty today with my hiking boots and volunteering outfit.

Untitled
Untitled
Got to my desk and found this poop emoji…no note from a mysterious sender…

Untitled

Today is the annual Getty day of service. I was supposed to do the outdoor project but because of the rain that project was cancelled. So instead we jumped in to the indoor on-site project to make blankets for two local women’s shelters.

Untitled
Untitled
Yeaaah!

Untitled
Snacks!

Tweedy is so smol

Real blurry my bad, but Kiki at happy hour

Never go to happy hour and then to REI.

Untitled
Was tempted.

More food/snacks than clothing for Yosemite

Really need to fix that curtain rod

Untitled
A farewell gift from Marie

Untitled
5.5 hour drive

Untitled
We’re in!

Untitled
GUH!

Untitled
Untitled
We arrived to our cabin in Yosemite West, then headed out for what we thought would be “an easy hike” around the Wawona Meadow.

Untitled
Untitled
Sticky mud we deemed “witch brew”

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
When the hike was still pleasant and we didn’t realize we weren’t lost

Untitled
Untitled
Zach’s legs are noodles

Untitled
Beaut

Untitled
Untitled
A little sweaty and happy to see a river

Untitled
The gang

Untitled
Notice anything?

Untitled
Untitled
Yes…all the tiny orange piles are lady bugs

Untitled
Untitled
She’s so hiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiigh, high above me

Untitled
After the traumatic realization we weren’t on the trail we thought and were indeed very deep into the mountain trail…we decided we’d need to hike back out the same way because it got dark and scary…

The pasta Marie made and sent with us was a god send.

Untitled
Untitled
Everybody so happy to be alive. Watching Harry Potter, eating sour s’getti

Untitled
Untitled
Good morning!!!

Untitled
Untitled
Waiting for the others to wake up, enjoying some coffee and the view.

Untitled
Untitled
Breakfast for all!

Untitled
Untitled
It was forecasted to snow….and indeed it started.

Untitled
So excited!!!

Untitled
So pretty

Untitled
We watched the Revenant which was a good survival mode fodder

Untitled
Untitled
Snow update!

Untitled
“Should we go outside?”

Untitled
Yes.

Untitled
Absolutely.

A lovely winter wonderland walk through Yosemite West

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
After a day in the snow, time for some warm chili and baked potatoes

Untitled
Good morning! A new day, a new environment

Untitled
More puzzling…

Untitled
I was burned by some hot spam oil that shot at my neck the morning before…looks…eh…gross?

Untitled
Another hike day! We are going into Yosemite Valley all day, so packing our lunches in the AM is keeey

Untitled
Bringing an MRE to fulfill my dream of making one in the wild

Untitled
Untitled
Men in Black, dressed to hike

Untitled
So excited to be out on the road, we were worried we wouldn’t get to see the valley because of the weather.

Untitled
Untitled
Quick stop to remove the tire chains

Untitled
WOWOWOWOWO

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
You don’t even have to work for this view, you just drive through a tunnel toward the valley and BAM.

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Sights and peeps as we drive to visitor center parking

Untitled
Cold face

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
We decided to do a quick stroll (an actual stroll) to see the lower falls, it was a paved trail with a bunch of cute dogs.

Untitled
And now for the Upper Yosemite Falls trail, apparently only 3 miles round trip to the “Oh my gosh” look out point but over 60 switchbacks…

Untitled
Before!

Untitled
Air out the pits

Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
Untitled
The views getting better and better as your legs get more and more tired

Untitled
Untitled
Crossing a river on a log, Aryn’s dream

Untitled
OMIGOSH!

Untitled
THE FALLS!!!

Untitled
Sat to have lunch

Untitled
Untitled
We’re stupid and probably shouldn’t have brought sandwiches up to the top of the trail. There was a very territorial blue jay ready to bite Kiki’s head off.

Untitled
Heading back down

Untitled
We stopped at Columbia Rock so I could be a nerd and make my MRE in the wild

Untitled
Untitled
Everybody humoring me

Untitled
But not a bad view

Untitled
I DID IT

Untitled
Untitled
The way down, not much talking and shaky legs.

Untitled
Untitled
After!

Untitled
HALF DOME

Untitled
Untitled
^___^

Untitled
View from the morning but on our way out

Untitled
Gorgeous

Untitled
Hot wings and Ghost Adventures

Untitled

Everybody passed out

Untitled
Lil’ Kiki

Untitled
Zach cookin’ sausages

Untitled
It’s already the last day!!! 😦

Untitled
What a lovely trip.

Untitled
Last shot of the puzzle. We were unable to finish it…*defeat*

Untitled
All packed up on our way out…but with our trash. Sorry Kiki.

Untitled
I’m sad to leave

Untitled
Untitled

Untitled
Untitled
Of course we returned to wifi and civilization to get Boiling Crab immediately

Untitled
Worth it

Untitled
I’ll just leave this here.

I have more from Yosemite on my other camera…been naughty updating ADIML posts and stuff. I’ll be better!

Much love friends.
