An Affair to Remember

If you are here for this event don’t forget to check out our exhibit in the Yosemite Museum (open everyday 10:00 – 4:00). Granite Frontiers: A Century of Yosemite Climbing will be up through November 9th. The exhibit has been the most popular exhibit shown in Yosemite and it will travel to other venues next year.

During all this we are receiving more donated artifacts and trying to keep up on the cataloging. It is a lot of work and we appreciate your donations. Without them it would not be possible. If you haven’t made a contribution lately, please consider a donation. We are a tax-exempt organization.

 

Thank you, Ken Yager
