Hiking, Western US, Yosemite / 15.10.2010

Yosemite lg day 4 - lunch at Lewis creek trail isberg junction According to the map the first section was supposed to be 8.9 miles. Sitting here by the sign it shows 11.2 miles. I had thought that was the longest 8 miles I had ever hiked. Elevation did not help either. I had no appetite and felt bad from the little I ate. I only had a piece of flat bread with some peanut butter for breakfast. I was suffering some. Now I have 3 miles up Lewis...

Yosemite log day 2 Made it to Merced lake. This is good because there are bear lockers and all of my food won't fit in cannister. Sitting by the lake watching the last light of day and drinking wine. Little Yosemite valley is better than I expected. In fact it is spectacular. Domes close in on both sides and I walked along a river while admiring giant Sugar Pines and the glimmering water. In Lost Valley the canyon narrows further. Every spot would be a major attraction in my home...
