Yosemite Backpackers Camp
Day 1 - Little Yosemite Valley
4.4 miles, 2436 ft up, 379 ft down
Being purists, we walked across the valley from the permit office to the Happy Isle trailhead
Start of the Trail
The Mist Trail
We probably saw more people in the first few miles hiking the Mist Trail to Vernal Falls than we would over the rest of the trail.
On the way up to Nevada Falls
Sunset at Nevada Falls
Day 2 - Half Dome & Sunrise Creek
7.7 miles, 3431 ft up, 1899 ft down
Back of Half Dome
Backside of Half Dome and the adjacent subdome. The light diagonal band just right of center that looks like it is cutting off the upper right corner of Half Dome is the cable section with a few people already on it.
