I have a few ideas of my own but I would like to get a few more based
on the Group's knowledge.
I am taking my wife backpacking for 3-nights over the July 4th holiday.
She usually does about 3 trips a year with me and I keep her
packweight at about 21 lbs.
She is a bit intimidated by heavy stream crossings.
I definitely am staying away from Yosemite Valley and Glacier Point.
Hetch Hetchy is one possibility but would rather hike out of Tioga
Pass or even Ansel Adams Rush Creek. I don't want to go much further
She has done the Pohono and Ten Lakes
I am looking at Silver lake to Thousand Island Lakes. I don't have to
make a 'perfect loop' but it would be nice to end up near the trailhead.
