Yosemite!!! That amazing place you want to go but have not yet. You have heard it's amazing but you did not want to go on your own and none of your friends were willing to join you or be adventurous. Or you have been before and you can't wait to go again. For either reason or many others: This is the event for you!! This event will be Car Camping compared to back-country camping. Meaning your car is steps away. Things on the agenda: Glacier Point This is one of Yosemite’s best viewpoints that you can drive up to with easy access. Located on the south wall of Yosemite Valley, you get a spectacular view of the valley and Half Dome. We will aim to do it for sunrise or sunset (the best times) Taft Point & Sentinel Dome Taft Point and Sentinel Dome are right next to each other. Taft Point is easy to get to and a great spot to conquer your fear of heights. Edge up to the cliff and stare straight down into the valley to appreciate it’s grandeur. Sentinel Dome is an easy 1-mile walk from the parking lot and gives you a 360-degree view of Yosemite. These are both on the way when diving to Glacier Point Yosemite Falls Standing at 2,424 feet, this is the highest waterfall in North America and sixth largest in the world! The best time to view it is in late spring when the melting snow creates the strongest flow. And that's when we will be there!!! The path to walk to this is flat and maybe 300 feet long of a hike . You can do that!!! There is also the option to hike up (a hard up hill long hike) Tunnel View From here you get a view of Yosemite Valley, Bridalveil Fall, Half Dome, and El-Capitan. This is the postcard perfect spot. Bridalveil Fall This waterfall is one of the most iconic waterfalls in the park and like Yosemite Falls . . . its super easy and flat and short. The Ahwahneechee Native American tribe believed that inhaling the mist would improve your chances of getting married. Half Dome This is Yosemite’s most popular rock formation. That's not on the agenda for this trip. BUT the hike to Vernal Falls and Mist Trail is the same trail to take to go up Half Dome. We will do Vernal and Mist Vernal and Nevada Falls Nuff said. Mariposa Grove These are the giant Sequoias located at the south end of the park at the Wawona entrance. Cooks Meadow (Ansel Adams) COSTS: Camping will be $85 total per person. This will cover three nights (Fri, Sat, Sun). Endless firewood provided. Unlimited Propane stove is provided and grill available. Paper goods provided (plates, utensils etc) Indoor and outdoor heated pool. Indoor Jacuzzi. Free Showers. Flush toilets (clean too!) Electricity at the site (to recharge your phone).

This is on your bucket list. So it's time to do it!! THIS event is for those wishing to HIKE UP WHITNEY. We entered the Lottery for permits and received 15. Yaaaayyy!!!! Our permit is for Fri June 21st. This trip is not for speed. And not meant to push hard. It is meant to give the least stress and least likely to have altitude sickness occur. Safety is the main priority. The Plan: Arrive Thurs June 20th in the evening. Fri Early Early Early AM up the hill. (or even at 11PM on Thurs) For a Dayhike, . . . 7 to 8 hours is considered moderate time for full summit and decent, with 10 hours considered slower. Or even 12 This is intended as Whitney for regular people. Some level of fitness will be required though. So you need to be fit but not a total backpacker or hiker. We will go slow and easy. Nobody is left behind. And if there are issues still . . nobody is left behind. If one person can not continue people will accompany them down the hill. This is not a fend for yourself hike or a fend for yourself group. This is for fun and community. Not for bragging rights. At this time of year there will still be snow at the upper elevations. Whitney is a place that is on everybody's bucket list. Let's have some stats: Whitney is the tallest location in the Continental US. Summit 14,505 Trail-head is 8,374 Total elevation change 6,131 ft (a mile is 5280 ft) Total distance 22 miles. That's 11 miles uphill in. And 11 miles back out. We will have a group campsite in Whitney Portal Campground for when we come down. It is booked from Friday, Sat and Sun night. Cost: $180.00 This event requires a significant amount of planning, leading and execution. And prepayment of campsites and etc. Yes. Our normal campsite events run about $75 for 2 night and $85 for 3 night. This event is substantially more rare and more difficult to arrange and coordinate. If you do not wish the opportunity to join our group for this reason you do have the option to pass. Terms: Your RSVP shows "interest" in the event. ONLY payment will secure your spot.

This is being led as a collaborative effort. In the end you will be responsible for yourself. Guarantees: There is no guarantee you will summit on this trip. You will have the opportunity to.
