@OldGuyot @REI-RachelL Thank you so much again for your insight!  I've been meaning to post this sooner, but better late than never.  The day trip to Yosemite was lovely!  🙂 No snow, but was definitely more strenuous than expected.  I thought I could get a few hikes in (hahaha, silly me!).  I did get there later than I wanted to, but then made my way on the Yosemite Falls trail.  Didn't make it all the way up because I ran out of daylight, but it was wonderful!  The one thing that slowed me down, honestly was my skill.  I just wasn't used to the terrain, so I was a slow-poke because I wanted to make sure I didn't trip to my doom, haha. 

It was an amazing start to my trip though & gave me a new perspective on hiking.  🙂 I will definitely be out that way again during my lifetime.
