Yosemite is about 4 hours from Stanford and I try to visit whenever I can.

Ray, Serene, and I went for an overnight trip to Glacier Point in Yosemite. We caught the tail end of a winter storm and conditions were not ideal; overnight temperatures dropped to 7 F. It was Serene and Ray's first winter camping trip.

Serene and I went on a short trip to Tuolumne Meadows in late August. We camped near the summit of one of the peaks in the meadows and caught a spectacular sunset and sunrise.

Andrew, Serene, and I went backpacking in Tuolumne Meadows during 2005 July 4th weekend. We had intended to hike a loop passing through Vogelsang, Merced, and Sunrise Lake. There was a lot of snow even in July because of El Nino, and we didn't get very far into the meadows. We turned back after spending a night at Boothe Lake. We still had a great deal of fun on the trip, the highlight being lunch on the second day next to a lake. Andrew took a dip in the freezing water and Serene and I just waded in a little.
