Welcome to the Sierra Nevada!

Considering the places you originally mentioned, I believe Cloud's Rest would have the most spectacular views. 360 degrees and across the Yosemite valley. It's a long day hike, but worth it.

Sure we couldn't talk you into doing a litttle research, renting some rear, and trying an over nighter? The weather should be moderate, no mosquitoes, plenty of company if you're on the popular trails.

Been there, done that. I tried convincing my friend to camp out in the wild on at least one occasion but he isn't interested. I'm not going with the same friend I went with a few years ago when we backpacked into Ansel Adams Wilderness for a few nights. We'll enjoy it nonetheless. It's simply gorgeous up there.

Yeah, any hiking in the mountains is nice.

The one time I was on Cloud's Rest, the only other people there were a mom and dad with five kids aged about five to twelve! Pretty cool how they all seemed right at home scrambling around on the rocks.

Greetings Maverick

Nice website. Glad I found you folks. It was either this, or go to forum where I could talk about my cell phone. ;)
