^ ha ya i know what you mean. Im not really scared of heights and will usually go and see whats going on at the edge of a cliff/mountainside but i wouldnt go near the edge when i did that hike!
the best hiking is really in tuolumne meadows
its absolutely beautiful!
Did any one check out the spider caves in the valley, boulders fell to create a cave and native indians painted on the inside of the cave, the way in sucks, it gets really tight, but the exit is just a huge boulder missing...
There's no spiders in there but you have to crawl like a spider to get in, it's really a sight to see, the dwelling painting on the walls are worth the trouble...
Mist Trail is absolutely awesome, just unfortunately it's an extremely popular day hike and sometimes you are surrounded by literally bus fulls of tourists and it detracts from the experience...beautiful though
gahh i need to get back up to yosemite
its the first year in about 12 years that i havent been up there!
coachella board hiking trip this summer!
I really need to check out Yosemite. I've only been hiking around Arizona. We have beautiful hiking trails but I need something different.
Why not the day after Coachella, we organize a hike or something!! For the Canadians!
Cathedral Lakes are awesome, I've been there a few times...never tried the High Sierra camps...but they seem pretty appealing since you don't have to carry 50 pounds of gear on your back!!
did you stay at that Sunrise Camp? I've camped there, but just at the backpackers campsight...awesome place
Whoa, missed this thread. I drove through Yosemite to see Catherine Wheel in SF once. :D
I want to get back into hiking now that my kids are school age and can actually go along for a while. Jacob is starting to get into fitness a lot too, so I hope that means he would want to go hiking too. I hiked down into the Grand Canyon a long time ago, would like to go back sometime soon. Also, we have the Superstition Mountain practically next door to us, so I need to check that out.
Need to go search for the lost Dutchman's gold mine.
My cousin in laws family lives on Superstition Mountain Golf Course, nice house, when my cousin and cousin in law are done with Chiropractor School, they are gonna open up business in AZ, can't wait to visit and climb superstition mountain, and I won't drive vespas drunk again...
I don't believe anyone has ever found the mine, and if they say they have, then they're lying.
Do you have to clip yourself in? Or is it basically the only thing up there on the final ascent a pair of cables you just death grip on?
No clipping in, but there are a pile of gloves at the bottom --- you just grab a pair and return them when you get down.
On the day we did it, the volume of people wasn't as bad as that first photo -- maybe a third of that.
That was from the top of a mountain we hiked in Big Sur while there for the Animal Collective show. Walked past Noah hiking the same trail as we came down. It was a beautiful hike, I got a lot of good pictures. If I get the time off, I may go back there soon. Most likely my next hike will be Iron Mountain again, some friends and I have been talking about going. You can see quite far over San Diego county from the top.
Coachella Board Hike? Awesome!! Who's gonna treck in the beer?
l Falls bridge- looking back down the canyon.
Vernal Falls in September
