questions Where were we going?
Didn't we find it very hard work?
Wouldn't we get lost? Weren't we

In Little Yosemite we made a amp

and after lunch set out on a ramble
up toward the base of Half Dome.

and then pushed through the forest

We held It to be but a tribute to
t.ur skill as mountaineers, however,
when we found an old sheep trail
following the very route we had
planned to take. For many miles we
followed it through the rolling forest
oast of Mount Starr King, throunh
Star King Meadow, and out near the
cret of a granite ridge near Clark
Fork. Here we left It behind and
struck across the open country, over
j ridge afte ridge, across stream after
stream, until we came to the north
em fork of Gray creek, where we
made a camp. We had reached the
altitude of about 8500 feet, and snow
drifts lay deep all about us. But
flicwood was abundant and our lit
tle nook among the tall firs promis
ed every comfort that a knapsacker
need expect.
In default of extra bedding we
took hot rocks to bed with us.
The night passed comfortably and
we were up at dawn ready for the as
sault on Mount Clark confident also
of success Ai we climbed the snow
lay even deeper about us. The for
est of fir and mountain pine gave
way to the hardier white-bark pine,
the tree of timber-line. Up to the
top of the ridge It crept, at the top
of a mere shrub, bent and twisted
beneath the winter's weight of snow,
As we climbed, our- horizon to the
south and west widened. We were
looking across the valley of the 1111
louette toward the snowy divide sep
arating us from the South Fork of
the Merced where lies .Wawona and
the splendid Mariposa grove of se

blue rift in the" forest with only its
great domes. Halm Dome. Sentinel
Dome, and Starr King, rising Into

Though a h'nken "chimney" or wln-

Comneasatcd Disappointment.
Well for us that this glorious vi
sion was compensation for all the
many miles we had climbed, for we
got no farther that day and Clark
still remains unconquered. For we
had anticipated the season for moun
tain climbing by a fortnight or more,
and the slope that should have of
fered an easy rock climb to the sum
mit was now a precipitous wall of
treacherous snow. We had no rope,
no ice ax, not even a knife with
which to cut steps, and tte Icy edge
where rock and snow met proved an
invincible barrier to the summit.
Up and down the ridge we prowl
edged, over every ledge. Into every
chimney, only to admit ourselves de
