Yosemite backpacking trip

So Kekoa and I went on a backpacking trip in Yosemite last week, we started near Bridalveil campgrounds (not falls), and ended up in the valley.. This was the first time we planned a trip ourselves and went without anyone else who knew (better) what they were doing. So the planning was slightly stressful, but, we are back, and didn't run into any bears or hurt ourselves. Some pictures Kekoa took on my flickr.

It was refreshing to be far away from civilization for 4 days, the first 1.5-2 days we saw no one, which was surprisingly nice.

Hi there ! My Husband and I are planing our Yosemite backpacking trip for July right now. I was searching for campsite besides the High Sierra Camp at Merced Lake. I learned that there has to be a more wild type of camp spot and I'm not sure, if you describe it in your blog? It would be very helpful if you could give us a hint, where we could find it. Thank you and Happy New Year :) Marion

Hey Marion,

You can totally camp there w/o staying at High Sierra Camps.
