entered at Leavitt Lake and leave at Tuolumne Meadows in 2017 August. Fording is durable then. But feet are wet for most days. Scenery is beautiful.

This is a real nice day hike. You can certainly turn this into an all out backpack trip too if you wanted, but this makes for a nice hike for just the day. Great views of Cathedral Peak and you can see all the way to the Columbia Finger from the pass area. Easy to walk a short distance to the upper lake, and a short half mile hike off the main trail to the lower Cathedral Lake. This is all along the John Muir trail. The first 3/4 of a mile are a pretty good uphill, then it levels off for pretty much the rest of the way. This is a real popular day hike out of Tuolumne.

My first ever backpacking trip. Hard and incredible. The views are outstanding, and I think it's easier to get to Half Dome this way than from the Valley floor.

thru hiked the pct 2016 the Sierras was my favorite part
