What an incredible hike. We took the mist trail down since it was our first time in Yosemite. The whole loop took about 8.5 hours. Going up to glacier point somehow wasn’t that bad, but we were literally dying on the ascent on panorama. Do not underestimate it. 2/3rds or so up the way on the ascent on panorama don’t miss a little turnoff to panorama point. We had lunch here and it was incredible.
We are not experienced hikers but are in good physical shape but managed the hike fine. Although afterwards our bodies were pretty much devastated. Great great day.
