Karlsen and I (we were at Wednesday's Happy Hour) will be backpacking from Tuolumne Meadows to White Wolf through the Grand Canyon of Tuolumne in Yosemite. I have secured the permit and we currently have room for two more 'Backcountry Buddies' on this trip. It will span five days and four nights beginning early Wednesday morning at the Tuolumne Meadows Wilderness Station where we will pick up the permit and then head over to Tuolumne Meadows to begin our trek to towards Glen Aulin. After about 3000 miles and 8000 feet in elevation changes, we will exit the trail at White Wolf.
I would gauge this trip at a medium/intermediate difficulty and would not recommend it as a first backpacking trip. It will be hot with scattered thunderclouds.
I am new to setting up a meetup, so hopefully I do not fumble the process.
