Half Dome – Yosemite Musing
The 7th annual Facelift at Yosemite is driving by the climbers. Ken Yager, head of the Yosemite Climbing Assn, posted some neat pix of the event and the after-party. Good job guys and gals. 1,001 unique volunteers signed up gathering 172,307 lbs of trash. Slightly over 140,000 lbs gathered was asphalt and concrete which was trucked out for recycling. Over 160 miles of roadway and turnouts were cleaned up. 100 + miles of trails and 20 miles of river corridor was also cleaned. Everything was sorted and over 80% was recycled.
