Half Dome and Clouds Rest Hike
by bclements3 on Oct 09, 2010
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...

Yosemite Glacier Point Snow Camping

Yosemite West, California, United States
23 miles
For my first snow camping experience, this trip to Yosemite proved to be educational and fun.Driving up on the day after Valentine's Day was moderately calm due to the lower volume of drivers during the winter. We took the road up to the Badger Pass Skiing Area and got out of the car to a brisk sunny day. Sunglasses were a must, and it felt like the start to any summer trip,...

2008 Half Dome Backpacking (from Tenaya Lake)

Curry Village, California, United States
25 miles
This three-day trip is to take an alternate route to climb Half Dome from the top of Yosemite Valley, instead of the famous one from the bottom of the valley taken by most people. First day was to depart from the Sunrise Lakes trailhead near Tenaya Lake and camped near the junction of Clouds Rest and John Muir (JMT) trails where was 2.5 miles away from Half Dome. Second day was to summit Half Dome in the early morning to prevent...

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...

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...

Arrived in Yosemite in time to pick up the Wilderness Permit before the office closed.  As traditional in our family, our first meal of the trip was Pizza at Curry Village.  We unloaded the backpacks and headed to the Backpacker's Camp behind North Pines Campground.  The weather was so nice, we just pulled out the sleeping bags and left the tents in the packs.Next morning, up in time to catch the 10...

2009 Half Dome Backpacking (from Yosemite Valley)

Curry Village, California, United States
24 miles
  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...

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...

May Lake to Mt Hoffman Summit
by helfrich on Sep 17, 2011
Yosemite National Park, California, United States
3.9 miles
A side trip before we depart May Lake.  Up to the top of 10,850 Mt. Hoffman.  The summit of Mt. Hoffman can't be seen from May Lake.   We asked Mookie, the camp assistant manger, how long it would take.  The general rule is one hour plus your age in minutes.  Fortunately for us we made it up in about 1:20.   We were told, back at Glen Aulin, the views of Yosemite from...
