    It was a great trip with a great group of hikers. We did the trip in the reverse direction as described on the Meetup post, keeping the same mileage breakdown, and it worked out very well. Thank you all for making it an enjoyable trip!

    Awesome trip. Challenging for me as it was the most cumulative milage and elevation gain/loss I've done yet on a 5 day trip. Beautiful scenery though. Thanks for putting it together Radwan.

    Hmm interesting. Doesn't matter to me. I just pack snacks and not lunch per se, so I usually just end taking a break every 2-3 hrs but I'm not opposed

    Thanks Radwan! Can I carpool with anyone? I'm near the Oakland/Berkeley border. I can share driving and contribute to gas.

    I'm an experienced backpacker and usually do 15+ mpd. I travel light with a 10-11lb baseweight. I've done some trips in Hoover and have always wanted to dip into NE Yosemite. Hope I can join!
