Yosemite 2024 Outdoor Club winter trip

For the THIRTY-FOURTH ANNUAL Yosemite Valley winter trip,

we had students ages 18, 19, 20, 20, 22, 23, 24, 26, 26, 28, 28, 30, and 35.

Some camped,

some shared a tent cabin

start of a road

some shared a very nice hotel room.



We all met at the Yosemite Lodge early on Saturday morning and formed groups for activities – and then re-formed the groups as people made up their minds about what they wanted to do. (Oops, this photo is missing a few people.)

Some did the trail to the top of upper Yosemite fall,

The trail had a lot of snow:

As always on these trips we expected heavy precipitation and had great waterproof rain gear

Where were they when they got that great picture in Yosemite?

Where can I take a photo that looks like the one on a Yosemite postcard I just bought?
