Ascent Trip Report

High Sierra Camp - Yosemite Backpacking Trip! First camping night from Touloumne Meadows.... Set out from Touloumne Meadowns TH just under 6 miles to Glen Aulin High Sierra Camp. Beautiful day for a hike - approximately 2:45 total trail time. Well defined trail and lots of FUN. Very sandy at times, and lots of fine yosemite dust. Beautiful waterfalls and the lake itself was beautiful! Day hike down the waterwheel falls once we got to camp... Maybe I'll write a separate report for that one. Carried everything for the trip - pack weight came in right around 37 pounds.
