oooo can't wait

As soon as I am released from school, my friend Krissy and I are taking my little corolla and driving straight to Yosemite. ohhh we can't wait. After my freshman year in college I drove out to Yosemite National Park to get a summer job. Being from Wisconsin, I didn't even know that climbing was a sport. After struggling up Grant's Crack, 5.10, and projecting a V0 for two months I was hooked. The next summer I talked one of my favorite girl friends, Krissy, into coming with me. We endured the debauchery of Boystown and learned how to place our own gear and set up anchors on our very first 5.7 trad climbs. It has been 3 years, and we have just set plans to head back to the valley. Now however; I am thoroughly obsessed with bouldering. I am going try my luck at Midnight Lightning and every boulder problem that I can throw myself on in two weeks. photos blatantly stolen from flickr.com

it all sends butterflies churning in my tummy, the thought of you, the valley, and god in the quiet of the park.

Hey Kelly, I found your blog through Jamie's. Your photos are great! Yosemite is sooo amazing! What year were you there? I lived in Boystown for about 8 months, and it was the best time of my life. That's crazy that you know Marriane, she lived in Boystown with this chill dude from B-ham when I was there. Check out my blog, there are a bunch of photos from Yosemite and all over. Well, keep it real and keep shooting!
