This year's VWS Senior Trip to Half Dome was an overwhelming success, notwithstanding the two broken down buses. The group came together as a class in many ways, not least of which was everyone making it to the saddle before the cables. Once there, they called the school and sang an emotional rendering of Daughter's Strong. Twenty-one students and three faculty continued up the cables. Thanks so much to Lianne for these great photos.
A pre-sunrise start time allows the seniors to get all the way to the top and back down in one day.
