Backpacking Skills Course in Yosemite

This trip will begin in Hetch Hetchy where we will launch ourselves into the backcountry of Yosemite and take our wilderness skills to the next level. In addition to soaking in all of the beauty Yosemite has to offer, the focus of this trip will be on leave no trace philosophy, camp craft, and trip planning.
