Beams of Light Through the Clouds
By John P. DeGrazio
Once again, we were honored to lead the Northern California Chapter of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation on their Xtreme Hike this past weekend. 37 hikers completed the hike from Yosemite Valley to Glacier Point and raised over $80,000. Several continued on to Sentinel Dome, and some of us even experienced a brief snowstorm there. Throughout the day, our group evolved as a coalition of several teams, and we emerged on the Sentinel Dome summit as “Team All Storms”. We traveled down the Panorama Trail for, well, extraordinary panoramic views on our return to the Valley. It was an exciting day, and one we will always remember. Thanks to all who participated and donated to this wonderful cause.
Editor’s Note: As summer has drawn to a close, please expect an increase in volume of stories and photos from Yosemite. I have a nice new library of images to share over the coming months. Thank you for your patience while I was out exploring.
