As part of our company campout, we spent a few days last week near Yosemite--always a good idea.  And one day we decided to take a hike. 
 
One of the nice things about the High Sierra Camps is that almost all of them are really only a day-hike away from a trailhead (Merced Lake is the only one that's a bit too far).  So we took a look at the map and headed out to Glen Aulin for the day.  The Tuolumne River is just plan gorgeous, and this hike kept us entertained throughout.  Great places to take a dip, cast a fly, eat lunch, read a book, or just sit and enjoy the river.
 
We've always wanted to hike the Grand Canyon of the Tuolumne, but the only time we had a permit for it, a local fire closed down the trail.  It's still on our list...but so are a lot of other things. 
 
This hike certainly gave us a slight taste of how lovely it must be.  And so it moves up our list a bit...
