Road Trip: Yosemite National Park
In between stays in San Francisco we went on a 2 1/2 day backpacking excursion into Yosemite National Park. Neither Mélanie nor I had ever been backpacking at that point (carrying your camping gear on you and camping in the woods, i.e. no campsite). We ended up hiking roughly 20 miles over 2 days including going up and then down more than 3,000 ft in elevation. It turns out the experienced backpackers we were travelling with had planned this as their “ass-kicker” of the year. We survived and had a lot of fun doing it.
