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.
