Hello! Myself and two other friends are backpacking through Yosemite from Yosemite Falls, towards Tenaya Lake and heading down past Clouds Rest and ending at Happy Isles on a 5 night trip from August 20th-August 25th. We have an idea of where we kind of want to end up each night, but were looking for suggestions of the best places to set up camp. I was thinking the general areas listed below, but would love some input!
20th: Camp near North Dome (I hear that watching the sunrise here can be beautiful)
21st: Camp near Mt. Watkins or Olmsted Point? Maybe Tenaya Lake?
22nd: Camp near upper sunrise lake
23rd: Camp near Clouds Rest? Looking for more suggestions about this!
24th: Camp in Little Yosemite Valley
Thanks in advance!
Note: We are watching the fires closely but want to keep planning the trip in hopes that everything clears up.
