A 30 mile backpack on trails in Yosemite. Start at White Wolf and end at
Tuolumne Meadows. After descending 3500 feet (net) to the Tuolumne River,
we follow it upstream for 4200 feet (net) past gushing waterfalls and the
Glen Aulin high sierra camp. Though it's on trail and not at high altitude,
don't underestimate the difficulty or beauty of this route. A car shuttle
between the two trailheads is required.

This trip is currently scheduled as a 3-day trip, but I'll accept inquiries
from people who would only be able to do it as a 2-day (very strenuous)
