Yosemite 2011 - Solo Hiking and Climbing
This is an account of a 4 day solo hiking and climbing trip I did in July 2011. The goal was to get comfortable hiking 15+ miles/day in preparation for a JMT thru hike later in the summer. It turned out to be much more.
I started out hiking past Vernal Falls the day after three people were washed over after carelessly posing for pictures on a rock in the water just 25 feet from the top. I made my mileage goals and climbed the snow fields to the top of Volgelsang in the unusually late snow melt. Below is a link to the trip report and photos:
I hope you enjoy!
