One last jaunt up into the mountains.
Cathedral Lakes, near Tuolumne Meadows In Yosemite National Park is a favorite high country destination for many park visitors. Yesterday, my friend Shawn Reeder and I took one last run up there to pick up some shots for an upcoming episode of Yosemite Nature Notes. I brought my camera, tripod and a 5-foot Kessler Crane CineSlider to get some sweet shots of Cathedral Peak and the area around the lakes. Here’s a video blog about our trip.
Shawn and I busted this out in half a day, leaving the car at about 12:30 and getting back before 7:00 with just enough light that we never even pulled out our headlamps. My pack weighed around 45 pounds, and my hips were a little sore after the six mile round trip, but I’m glad we made it up there before this next storm rolled in!
