Yesterday I was totally bummed because I wouldn’t be returning to the Canary Islands this spring-indeed, “life is what happens when you have other plans…”  Work commitments and timing proved that this trip wasn’t in the cards this year.  Less than 24 hrs. later I received notice that I had finally won out on the JMT lottery…Mt. Whitney to Yosemite…yes, please.  Looking forward to delving into the details of this bad boy for sure.
