Check out these pics from skiing to Dewey Point in Yosemite
Monday, March 22, 2010
On Sunday we skied out to Dewey Point in Yosemite National Park. I was pretty apprehensive about the trip. Its 3mi out and the last 1.5 mi are supposed to be black diamond rated (expert skiers only) I am def NOT an expert skier. Hubby assured me it would be no problem. Bless his heart he always thinks I am much more skilled at everything than I really am. I pulled up my big girl panties and decided to go for it.
It was a little rough but we took our time and I had a blast the view was soooooo worth it. Had even more fun on the way back. The snow conditions were very forgiving. I imagine under different conditions this route would not be as fun and would be close to black diamond. Here is my victory pic of me on top of Dewey Point. It was really scary up there. Lose your footing in the snow and you tumble down about 2000ft!!
Here is a picture of El Capitan as seen from Dewey Point
Here is a good picture of famous Half Dome taken by hubby
Here are a few more I took from the top
