Trip Report: 2006: Toulomne Meadow to Matterhorn Pass Loop

Trip report for Tuolumne Meadows to Matterhorn Pass Loop (40 miles)
July 23–27, 2006
Nick and Fred

Day 1: Tioga Pass to Cascade Lake (8 miles)
Day 2: Cascade Lake to Virginia Canyon Return (4.2)
Day 3: Virginia Canyon Return to Spiller Creek (4.7 miles)
Day 4: Spiller Creek to Pacific Crest Trail, with first attempting to do Matterhorn Pass (8.8 miles)
Day 5: PCT to Glen Aulin (9.6 miles)
Day 6: Glen Aulin to Tuolumne Meadows (5.5 miles)

This was a fantastic trip. This trip report is a little sketchy on details, as I did not keep a journal of it at the time, so having to recreate it just from the pictures and where we stayed each night. This trip was cross-country for the first 4 days. While the mileages those days were not difficult, the terrain and passes made it challenging, at least for us. Also it had been a heavy snow year, so there was a bit of crossing snow fields. It also made for great views.
