There’s not much to say about
It is a beautiful place, no doubt. Trey and I stayed just outside the National
Park for eight days. The weather was perfect and people were friendly. I wasn’t
expecting such a tourist trap, but I guess it is a place that everyone wants to
see. Next time we go there, we want to do some high country hiking, maybe then we
will find some solitude. We really want to climb Half Dome, but there is still
too much snow and ice. Most of the high country is still under snow. We hadn’t
exactly planned to be there at that time. It just worked out that way because
we couldn’t mountain bike and needed something to distract us from our grieving
We did two major hikes. The first one was to
and the second hike was Upper
to Vernal Falls .
Nevada Falls Upper Yosemite was one of the hardest yet most groomed
trails I have ever done. We climbed 2700
ft over three and a half miles. This hike is totally
worth it, the views are stunning. We came off this trail in the dark along with
a dozen other people, including a pissed off elder woman who was swearing at
her husband, saying she was “NEVER” going to do this trail again, and a family
with four young children. I can only imagine how often rangers have to rescue
people off the trail at night. We met another couple who said that rangers
routinely hike up that trail to help people who are coming down without
flashlights. Trey and I tend to bring flashlights with us on hikes because we
get caught-up taking pictures and loose track of time. I would say 90% of our
hikes end in darkness.
You can watch our videos of the two hikes. It’s a lot of me and my butt as I’m hiking up. J
Hasta luego me amigos.
I'll post more photos later!
