cbalke Jim taking it all in. There are some great views around Tahoe, but I have to say that the views from Maggie's South Peak are pretty hard to beat. 31min

cbalke I started looking at some photos I took last year and realized I haven't gone out to shoot anything in a while. I can't believe how fast this summer is flying by. With all the weddings, family events, work and everything else it's been a blur. Bay bridge fighting off the fog last September. 6d

cbalke Yosemite is celebrating it's 150th birthday as a National Park today. I thought I would share one of my favorite vistas. I really wish you could zoom in and wander around this panoramic shot. This was taken in 2012 on a last minute trip with @antik5 1mon

  •   aka__jk Unreal trip you're on 1mon
  •   cbalke @kbeerwith I was eyeing it and really wanted to do it, but I'm saving it for next trip 1mon
  •   cbalke @aka__jk 1600+ miles, 9 days, 5 different hotels, 1 camp site.. It was a great road trip! A little rushed/crammed at times but the fam did pretty good at keeping it together. Best of all we saw a bunch of new stuff and made some great memories. 1mon
  •   dustinb333 Love Pinecrest hike up to Cleo baths water falls. 1mon
  •   kbeerwith @cbalke I attempted it...along with many lol....harder than it looks. Too slippery. 1mon
  •   cbalke @dustinb333 I heard about it but we were only there for 4-5 hours. I need to make it back up there to check it out. 1mon
  •   cbalke @kbeerwith I have to make it now (since you couldn't). Haha 1mon

cbalke Tunnel View. Last and extremely brief stop on the road trip, Yosemite. Bummed about the overcast skies but otherwise the weather was great. Bridalveil falls was mere mist at this point and Yosemite Falls flow was pretty weak as well. 1mon

cbalke Convict Lake is pretty amazing. I really wish I could have stayed longer. I'm already thinking about when I can come back. If you've never gone I highly suggest it. 1mon
  •   cbalke @jewieee $22 a night at Convict Lake campground. Do it, let me know how you like it. 1mon
  •   unseeninmt Sweet spot I've done some split missions at Convict. Way back in Rock Creek is really good too there's a winter shelter you can rent to gain access to the mid winter pow zone! Nice photo 1mon
  •   cbalke @unseeninmt I'm going to have to get some more beta. Hopefully I can make it down this winter for a couple day split mission. Thanks for the heads up on the shelter! 1mon
  •   youre_so_cool_i Convict lake is amazing when it's not windy.. there's a campground for free called glass creek if anyone wants to save a few bucks. It's dry camping but its not far from Convict lake and its pretty legit itself just throwing it out there 1mon
  •   cbalke @youre_so_cool_i thanks, I'll check it out. 1mon
  •   naturestaker Beautiful 1mon
