I mean Auntie Pollyann :) and Mom impressed me tremendously by braving the 400-ish steps up the side of a granite dome to the top of Moro Rock! We went first thing in the morning to avoid the heat and were rewarded with great visibility and spectacular views across the High Sierra to the Great Western Divide.
