O: Boothe Lake, Yosemite Mule Pack Trip: Boothe Lake is the reason why you would trade a perfectly warm bed in your home for a sleeping bag in the wilderness. Our packers will carry 45 pounds of your gear over a little less than seven miles with an elevation gain/loss of around 1,200 feet to one of the prettiest spots in Yosemite National Park on Boothe Lake. On Tuesday we will leave the Tuolumne Meadows pack station, head south along the inviting Tuolumne River then pick up the babbling Rafferty Creek along a heavily wooded trail as we head up to Tuolumne Pass (9,927 feet) then down to our base camp at Boothe Lake. Day hikes available are Ireland, Bernice and Emeric Lakes to mention a few. Evenings will be filled with a happy hour followed by potluck dinners and a different soup each night. For those interested, fly-fishing lessons will be available on Boothe Lake. Saturday we hike out. $395. Note the reservation /cancel policy under the additional information link where you can find other info about mule packs. Due to the logistics of obtaining backcountry permits in Yosemite National Park, the date of this trip is subject to change. To apply, email with recent high altitude and distance conditioning to Co-leader Fran Penn. Co-leaders: Doug Farr and John La Rue
