The winter in the Sierra was a long and wet one. While the climbing in Yosemite was less than ideal due to the heavy snow and seeping cracks I spent most of the winter and spring in Bishop – where it was dry, windy and the grip was biting. But, all of that rain and snow have come to make the summer in Yosemite one full of color and wonder. The wild flowers are in season! Unfortunately so are the tourists.
