Subject: yosemite vip weekend april 2009!

well we had a fabulous start to the climbing year in our first volunteer in the park project at yosemite last weekend. our task was to move the tent platforms we built at the end of last season over to camp 4. we started setting up the structures, did some painting of the platforms as well as painted some of the existing tent cabin doors and porches. we got quite a bit done but it was too much for only 6 hours. i'm sure we'll probably have to finish it out next month!

the valley was absolutely beautiful and the weather was amazing. i've never seen yosemite falls with so much water! and there was still some snow in the merced. best part of the work day for me was spotting a bear! someone had been yelling like a banshee at camp 4. i thought someone had fallen off rock and was trying to get help. then i see him running. so i go stalking... the guy doubles back to continue bouldering and i spot the bear. i slowly approached and came upon it while it was playing with a lime green nalgene bottle. it spied me just as i got one great photo! (though it needs some light adjustment. however, the bear just wouldn't sit for another photo!)(honestly, don't they train them!) anyway, here are some shots of yosemite, camp 4, the bear and more are here:

Sign up now for the July 18th project.

Project Details:
Ken Stowell has our group assisting with the Buildings and Grounds Repairs in the valley. We have three big projects this year. The first one will be this weekend where we will be working on the old Wellness Center. The last project we did some work on this building. We may be working on this again. This will involve a little demolition (removing/building a wall to make a room a little bigger) and some work outside of the building too. I really need a lot of people for this project. the other two projects this summer will be working on the two Amphitheaters in Yosemite.

Ken will meet us at our campsite Saturday at 9:00am.


How this Works:
A few days prior to the weekend, I will send you a gate pass for free admission to the park, along with information on the location of our campsite. We will start work at 9 a.m. Saturday and finish near 3 p.m. The work will be such that you can work at your own pace, and the NPS will provide all required tools.

You're free to do as you like after we complete the project. Some people will go climbing while others may go for a hike.

Please be awake by 8:00 a.m. on Saturday and ready to leave no later than 8:30. It does take a while to eat, clean up and get ready to work.
