Yosemite Chilnualna Loop
August 9-14, 2005
Located in the deep Yosemite south, this trip typically falls off the radar of the common Yosemite backpacker.  As a result, solitude and silence are yours to enjoy in one of Yosemite’s lesser-known treasures.  See one of the tallest waterfalls outside of the Yosemite Valley and travel almost the entire length of this trip along famous creeks and endless lakes allowing for almost continuous mountain swimming. $600 per Participant For more info on this trip click here: http://www.backcountryfound.com/chilnualna.html
