Part two of a series chronicling the author’s backpacking trip through Yosemite — specifically, his first two days on the trail, from Glacier Point to Lower Ottoway Lake. Experience a bus ride, a tenuously controlled fire, and the natural flavor-enhancement that wilderness has on common food, and more . . .
Late this past summer, the author spent the better part of a week hiking through particularly remote areas of Yosemite National Park’s wilderness. He thought he’d be a pioneer by leaving his car at home and riding transit between San Francisco and Yosemite — but it turned out he wasn’t much of a pioneer in that way at all. Part I chronicles: the trip out to Yosemite and the subsequent evening in Yosemite Valley.
