The last few days have been wet and rainy in Yosemite. This seems appropriate, since it was wet and rainy when Theresa and I started going out. In fact, it was because it was wet and rainy we started going out. I reserved a couple of campsites at Devil's Lake and invited about 15 people to camp and climb. It poured and only one person showed up on the first day. We cooked in the mud under a tarp and generally wallowed in the squalor. It was the first time we had done anything together just the two of us and, there it was. Ten years ago on Oct.27.
