Yosemite Glen Aulin Backpack Itinerary (3 Days)

This itinerary covered my one and only backpacking trip within the boundaries of Yosemite National Park (at least in our the first 15 years that Julie and I have been waterfalling). Not one for roughing it in the wild, Julie spent time out of town with her cousins while I was accompanied by a couple of very good friends since high school who were backpacking veterans. While my friends were used to Eastern Sierra Lakes and mountain passes, this trip represented a bit of a change for them as we actually started from high elevation (Tuolumne Meadows) then dropped down to lower elevations while following waterfalls all along the Tuolumne River. There were also a few surprise waterfalls seen en route.

This trip covered two nights and three days. We were fortunate that a snafu with the wilderness permit office didn't burn us when we arrived. In any case, while my friends would typically organize these types of trips, in a bit of a role reversal, I was the organizer of this trip. And the table you see below summarized the logistics of how we managed to make this happen...
