all day

 

We will drive up on Friday and hopefully get a permit early Saturday morning. Long day on Saturday: hike in to Ireland Lake, drop our packs and climb Parsons. Another long day, Sunday, when we will move damp and climb Lyell. Hike out on Monday. I will have my 12-year-old son Gavin with me. These are the high points of Tuolumne and Mariposa Counties. Please email if interested: jeff_fisher_5252@sbcglobal.net. Leader: Jeff Fisher, 650-207-9632.

Hike through the lovely forests of the southern parts of Sierra National Forest through Crown Valley to Tehipite Dome. We plan to climb the dome and return to camp below Kettle Dome the first day, covering about 20 miles. The second day is a 20-mile day hike into the NP through Blue Canyon to climb Tunemah and return to camp. The last day hike out, about 15 miles.

Participants should be extremely well-conditioned for long light-weight backpacking and long multiple-day hikes.
