Yosemite-Clouds Rest & Ragged Peak

Thursday, August 02, 2012

I was lucky to get in on this Yosemite Camping Trip with a group of hikers. After two months of knee healing followed by a hike that wound up being an unplanned sleepover in the wilderness by myself, skipping the Yosemite trip was the last thing on my mind. Someone asked me if I was afraid to hike after my San Gorgoinio Hike. What do you think?

Do I look like I am afraid to hike?

This is much easier than it looks. It is also quite majestic.

Once we got to the peak it was full of all sorts of folks some of us knew. It was kind of cool to run into people we knew from our other hikes. Everyone was having a blast and super happy at the peak.

So that night everyone sat around the campfire laughing really loud. They were so happy I don't know how I slept right through it all. Yes, once again I went to sleep while a good time was had by all around the campfire. Honestly, I would just like to know how these guys can hike hard all day then stay up. My poor old tired body had no choice but to sleep asap!

I did get in on some campfire action on our last night there, but still went to sleep early just in case they squeezed in a last minute hike on our last day.

We also hiked to Ragged Peak then down to Young Lake.

I just had to show you guys the snow here even though it is the last day of July.

We then made our way back to our campground in the Tuolumne area of Yosemite by way of Soda Springs Campground where I saw the two dear in the video I posted.

On our way home we stopped at a hot spring, there are many along in the area. We then had a delicious meal where I had for the first time ever Peruvian Beans, I ate every bite. I have noticed these hiking trips result in quite a bit of eating emoticon

The only bad part was leaving. I am not even going to complain about the overabundance of food and eating that went on especially since I was a major participant in it emoticon

Murphy Hiker took good care of Baily in my absence, but it was nice to get back to the house. My daughter Bianca is in Australia right now she sent me this
