CalESAR Memorial Day PSAR - Yosemite, September 2006


Launched: 10/17/2006

The 2006 California Explorer Search and Rescue Memorial Day PSAR (Preventative Search and Rescue) was held in Yosemite National Park, from September 1st through 4th.

The weather was gorgeous, the mosquitoes were all but gone, but the falls were virtually dry. Many of our teams were out on different assignments, so I wasn't able to get shots of any team but my own.

Still, we all had a great time, and were able to help a number of people before they needed rescuing (which is really the point of the weekend).
