Great hikes to Cloud’s Rest in Yosemite, and then Rancheria Falls in Hetch Hetchy

Went with some of my colleagues in the Economics Department.  They have been doing Half Dome, but this year did not get the lottery, so they chose Cloud’s Rest.  I was happy to be along, even if I sort of brought up the year (which helped when Alex’s GPS device fell out of his pocket and I came along 5 min later and found it on the trail… hmmm…. but what if it hadn’t been his!?)  Some pictures.  Trule spectacular ascent at the end on the arête.   Wow was I scared, heart pounding, inner voice saying, “don’t look around, just look down.”
