we did not fall off Taft Point

This is just a note to say that we did not fall 7503 feet to our deaths.

I am writing up a post [with pictures!] about a whirlwind trip to Yosemite that we took on Saturday.

Here's a description from the (really funny) folks at Yosemite Hikes, re: Taft Point: "Hazards: The dropoff at Taft Point is steep, and a fall would be not just fatal, but squish-you-like-a-bug fatal. The fall is so far that your friends, waving their teary goodbyes and hoping you didn't have the only set of car keys, would lose sight of you before you reached the ground. So be careful. "

To that, certain people say "pshaw"...because they're CRAZY.
