My family (husband, 20 yr old son, 18 yr old daughter, and I) visited Yosemite for the first time ever. Where do you begin? Coming from the suburbs of Chicago, our ideas of "elevation" and "wilderness" were meaningless, yet we wanted to explore the great outdoors... and live to tell about it! So glad we found Lasting Adventures!
To begin with, we have some mobility issues and did not want to push it so we scheduled a Valley Hike through Scott. John was our guide and after meeting us and hearing what we were looking for, he led us on a hike around Mirror Lake. That was the PERFECT hike for us. As we took in the beauty, we appreciated not only the route, but also the knowledge that John shared with us. It was so much better than reading about this stuff in a book and trying to figure it out ourselves. The hike was wonderful but the kids were eager for another hike the next day (I was not so confident). As we talked with John, we decided to go for the Glacier Point-Panorama-Mist Trail hike. Scott was great about scheduling that on a short notice and John was AWESOME in agreeing to meet us halfway up to Glacier Point (because we were staying in Yosemite West) rather than having to drive down to the Valley and take a shuttle up.
That Panorama-Mist Trail hike was absolutely incredible... probably one of the best decisions of my life!!! I would not have ever seriously thought of doing this on my own. I am so grateful for the expertise of Lasting Adventures! Thank you for helping me cross one adventure from (yet add another to) my bucket list. See ya for the next one when we come back!!!
