Wish I was in better shape for this goal, but at least we are going and can do lots of day hikes. Can’t wait!

It looks like parks passes are going up this year from $50 to $80. Might be a good time to buy a $50 one if they are still available.
Yosemite won’t happen until July or August, but DH and I are already in training. We’re in decent though not amazing shape for hiking. The past 3 weekends we have made a point of hiking at least 4 miles with a fairly good incline at a regional park. Yesterday we did 7+ in about 3 hours including a 1200 peak. Ok, this isn’t the same as a 4000+ ft gain, but it’s a start!
After all, what’s the point in going if we are too winded to make the 12+ hour hike to Half Dome and back?
We also looked into campsites March 15th is the day the July-August ones go up for grabs.
