Wake-up: Live the Dream

I said earlier that I would write more about the Yosemite, CA and Patagonia, Chile backpacking trips during the rest of August. I kept putting it off and I now realized there was a reason-there are some things that you just have to do for yourself. You need to live the dream and see these places from your perspective which will be very different from my perspective. I loved both the Yosemite, CA and Patagonia, Chile trips for different reasons. Yet they were both great trips and ones that I would highly recommend.

Chile tested my ability to hike in terrible weather conditions for multiple days.

Yosemite was an elevation roller coaster in the midst of endless blue sky.

See my previous posts on what clothing and gear to bring backpacking, how to waterproof your backpacking gear, our route and the lottery for the high sierra camps, and making reservations for the W trail in Chile.

I would be happy to answer any questions you might have regarding these trips so please email me or comment and leave your email so I can respond directly.
