Yosemite High Country

August 27, 2012  •  1 Comment

August 17 to 19, 2012 - We are fortunate that Yosemite National Park is close enough for us to go for just a long weekend. We stayed at White Wolf Lodge, elevation 8000 ft, in the high country (Tioga Road) region of the park. The name "Lodge" is perhaps misleading, for our lodging was a simple canvas tent without electricity. We had to walk outside to get to the bathroom. The Lodge does have a cozy dining room which serves decent food.

The weather was mostly cloudy, with drizzles at times, and was unusually cool for August. We had a fabulous time with new hikes that led to lakes and wildflowers. We came upon May Lake, site of a High Sierra Camp, and we learned about the other High Sierra Camps. These camps form a loop of 5 destinations that allow backcountry exploration without the burden of bringing a heavy backpack and are definitely worth trying in the future.
