|Ahhh, I love Tuolumne!|
We went back to Tuolumne to celebrate my 30th birthday in style with fancy fruit, climbing, friends and an abundance of sunshine. We arrived at the Tuolumne Meadows Campground early in the morning on my birthday (August 1), and found Chris stumbling to the bathroom, half awake. He and his girlfriend, Kira, made the drive up from San Diego earlier that day.

|We climbed a small dome!|
Kyle and Sharada had arrived once we got back to the campsite. We spent the night eating and drinking around the campfire, and my friend Reuben, his roommate and a friend came as well. It was a nice evening, and we ate many whiskey-soaked marshmallows over a hot fire.
