Ce vei face

As a Yosemite local I have knowledge of endless spots in the park that are off of the beaten path. On this trip we will be exploring my own version of the mirror lake loop. This 5 mile+ loop takes you into the entrance of the supposedly haunted Tenaya Canyon, named after Chief Tenaya of Ahwahneechee tribe who originally inhabited Yosemite Valley. We will meet at the Yosemite Valley Stables located just past Curry Village. From here we will walk past where I live so you can see a bit of what my life is like living here. After that we will walk next to Tenaya Creek to Mirror Lake, beneath the steep north face of the infamous Half Dome, under what is known to climbers as “The Death Slabs” then beyond and back again. Along the way we will have the opportunity to see a grinding stone where the Ahwahneechees prepared food, secret caves, climbers making their way up Washington Column, waterfalls, and countless wildlife including but not limited to black bears, bobcats, deer, and coyotes. As we walk i will be telling you about climbing, nature and wildlife, legends of Tenaya Canyon, a story written by John Muir, and about life in the valley past and present.
Even if this trail is one you have done before I intend to send you home with a brand new perspective, uncovering all sorts of Yosemite treasures that may seem hidden to the average visitors’ eye. Snowshoe version coming soon!
Other things to note
There is an entrance fee to get into the park that you will need to pay. Yosemite National Park is bigger than the state of Rhode Island so calculate time from the park entrance to Yosemite Valley. Grocery store hours are limited, bring food from outside the park. There is no gas in Yosemite Valley.

I have been living and working in Yosemite Valley for nearly 4 years. Among many other outdoor hobbies I have enjoyed countless climbs, hikes, and swims in some of the most remote and beautiful locations in the park. Introducing people to new and exciting outdoor experiences is a passion of mine and has driven most of my career choices. I have instructed swimming, climbing, snowboarding, skiing, I have 10 years in aquatics rescue as well as 4 years as a wilderness first responder, and am now sharing with you some of my favorite locations in one of the most beautiful places in the world.

Unde vei fi

We will be embarking on our journey from the stables parking lot, walking past my community to access the trail head for the mirror lake loop. This time of year offers a beautiful contrast of fall colors on the trees and a bright green moss on the granite boulders. The crisp fall air and frequent shade from the towering Glacier Point calls for warm layers!

Connor was awesome! We did Mirror Lake the week of a snowstorm and didn’t know what to expect, but Connor came prepared and we had a great day. He came with a map and a little book of more facts than I could have hoped for— about Yosemite, John Muir and CLIMBING! We did the Mirror Lake loop and had to skip out on a waterfall along the loop due to ice, but he improvised and showed me an even better spot with views from above. He pointed out things and shared facts related to the Native Americans that lived on the land originally. We watched climbers along the paths and he explained what they were doing, which was so cool to see first hand. And he followed up later with books and documentaries to watch about Yosemite. It was a great day! Also, I felt he took COVID-19 seriously and maintained 6ft and wore a mask all the time. Very respectful.
