Sierra Nevada - Yosemite National Park - Yosemite/Matterhorn

During August 19-26, 1962 myself, Bob Brooks, Jay Burdine, Clint Powell, Bruce Webb and Mike Warren did a 46 mile Deck Trek from Tuolumne Meadows in Yosemite National Park to Twin Lakes near Bridgeport, California. Along the way we climbed Matterhorn Peak.

Saturday night we drove to Bridgeport and camped at Twin Lakes.

Sunday we left a car at Twin Lakes and drove to Tuolumne Meadows, then backpacked 5 miles to Glen Aulin to camp. Hiked down to Waterwheel Falls (6 miles+ RT) Beautiful Falls on Tuolumne River.

Monday up Cold Canyon - beautiful trees and meadow - and down into Virginia Canyon.

Tuesday to Matterhorn Canyon via Spiller Creek.

Wednesday up Matterhorn Canyon to Burro Pass and camp just below pass on North Side (My 30th Birthday).

Thursday climbed 12,285' Matterhorn Peak in 1 1/2 hours. Route was easy 2nd Class with a tendency to 3rd Class near top. Beautiful views of area - Then down to Slide Canyon.

Friday high climb over Mule Pass crest near Slide Mtn and out of Yosemite Park - cross-country down to Barney Lake - 3-4 miles following markers for new surveyed trail soon to be built. Easy route except last couple of miles through marsh and rocks above Barney Lake - Crown Lake and others beautiful.

Saturday down to Twin Lakes and car - visited Lundy and Bodie then to Yosemite Valley via Tioga Road for Firefall and night. Sunday home - GOOD TRIP.
