Yosemite - Panorama Trail

Curry Village, California, United States
9.8 miles
Following a suggestion from a gentleman at REI, we did the Panorama Trail in Yosemite.   This is a great mostly downhill hike.  You take a bus ride from the valley to Glacier Point.   From there you start with a huge view of the valley.  Taking the Panorama Trail we passed three falls including Illiloutte, Nevada and Vernal.Lucky for us it had rained a week or so prior and gave the falls...

2009 Half Dome Backpacking (from Yosemite Valley)

  Half Dome (8,836 ft.), a granite dome with its unique shape proudly stands at the eastern side of Yosemite Valley, is in every hiker's dream to summit it during their vistis to Yosemite Valley. Most hikers choose the day hike to get to the top by following an 8.5 miles trail from the valley floor. Few others choose to backpack the same trail and camp at either Little Yosemite Valley or Sunrise Creek camp sites for...

An overnighter along the beautiful Chilnualna Falls trail in Yosemite near Wawona. We left San Jose bright and early at 6am and arrived in Wawona around 9:30 including a 15 minute or so to pay our $20 for a week long pass. Next stop was the beautiful Wawona Hotel to meet the others and grab our wilderness permit at the wilderness center. We arrived early so went exploring around the hotel grounds and...

Exploring the Yosemite North Rim

Yosemite Valley, California, United States
28 miles
This was a busy weekend in Yosemite and for the group I was tagging along with, this route was plan E or F. For me, who's never been on the rim, it was as good as a plan A.We left a car at Yosemite Creek campground and drove along Tioga Road to Porcupine Flat where we started hiking to Indian Rock first. Going to the Indian Rock summit involves a side trip...

Half Dome and Clouds Rest Hike

25 miles
MY TO DO LISTHalf Dome has been on my to-do list all Summer.   Then all of a sudden October snuck up on me and I realized I only had a week left to do it before the cables come down Oct 12th.   I tried to plan a trip mid-week because permits aren't required on weekdays.  However, the weather took a turn for the worst and I didn't want to risk it.    So...

It's spring, and spring means waterfalls and flowers and green in Yosemite. What better way to spend a spring weekend than gawking at all of these things, especially on a backpacking trip?Hetch Hetchy is the fraternal twin of Yosemite Valley, drowned in the early 20th century to provide drinking water for the San Francisco Bay Area. As a result, it's much less visited than Yosemite Valley, and you can even go backpacking...

Lyell Canyon - Vogelsang Loop

Yosemite National Park, California, United States
20 miles
The Yosemite High Country in July... creeks full of snowmelt, meadows full of flowers, mosquitos full of blood. This hike is remarkably gentle and relatively easy for all that it climbs high into the high country. Of course, the presence of one of the High Sierra Camps (hotels in the backcountry) should tell you that. It goes "up" Lyell Canyon (which is perhaps the flattest 6 miles I've hike anywhere), following the...

JMT Yosemite: Tuolumne Meadows to Yosemite Valley via the Cathedral Lakes TrailOVERVIEW:  This was a 3 day trip covering approximately 20 miles. The idea was to finish off an "easy" part of the John Muir Trail (JMT) on a quick weekender before winter sets in.  One special aspect of this trip would be that my lovely wife "CW" would be with me on her first backpacking trip!NOTE: The route displayed on this...
