We’re back! Many many thanks to Jives for his excellent guest blogging – mmmmm, chocolate right whale. Our hike was awesome and featured a minor bear attack, a blister so large that it was named Bubo, and an extremely fetching marmot. Regularly scheduled blogging shall resume when we’re a bit more dug out from stacks of accumulated work. In the meantime, here’s tiny Eric and tiny Miriam atop Half Dome.
