My Best Hike: Cloud's Rest, Yosemite NP
Best Hike Description: Cloud’s Rest is a peak, 9,926 ft. high, on the North side of the valley overlooking Tenaya Canyon with Half Dome and Yosemite Valley in the distance and a clear, virtually unlimited 360 degree view of the surrounding countryside. The hike was a 14 mile round trip with a very steep, half mile climb of about 800 ft. at around the 2 mile mark, VERY rough on the upgoing muscles. The trail then continues down about another 500 ft. which, of course, must be regained enroute to the summit. But the rest of the hike consisted of mostly fairly easy ups and some downs until you reach around the 6 mile mark, then climbs the final 500 ft. of elevation or so in the last quarter mile.
My Worst Hike: They're all good
A Memorable Trail Moment: Sunset in Sequoia NP
Trails That I Want To Hike: To hike all NPs before we die.
