Half Dome 1989
Photos from my first ascent to the top of Half Dome in a day. I arrived
the day before and was able to spend the night in Pat's employee housing.
Pat was working the summer in the valley. He was in great shape from
hiking all spring. My quads were stiff and sore that night.
I spent another night and we had breakfast at White Wolf the next morning.
Blueberry pancakes on a sunny porch was wonderful. Later I had a
nice ride home on my Suzuki GSXR750.
