I had to include this video first, because who would have thought that a group of girls who have to do their hair and makeup before a big day like this would have made it to the top! Honestly though, I could not have had a better group to go with. Tina, my sister-in-law started planning this whole thing about 4 months ago I think. She had everything planned out perfectly including cooking a lasagna beforehand, bringing it with her so that we could have a delicious meal after the hike. So thank you Tina for bringing us all together to make the experience a memorable one!
When I said in the previous post that I had to get things organized before posting any more, I actually meant that Garrett had to get things organized so that he could work his magic and make another one of his masterpieces. I had seen videos of the Half Dome climb on You Tube before going, and knew that I wanted my own video to post. So I brought the video camera and took as many shots as I could. I had put it away right before going up the cables thinking I needed to have my hands free, but it was so slow going because of the crowds that I got it out about ten steps up and kept it around my wrist the rest of the way just incase there was anything I had to capture. Garrett has finished his masterpiece and has posted it on You Tube and on his Web Gallery, so you can see it either place.
I have more to write, but I have to go to work for a little while to make up for some lost hours while I was huffing and puffing up the mountain. I will write more!
