First Time @ Yosemite

Hi all! Heading to a conference in California next month and I want to take a day to explore Yosemite.  I understand that it's a big park & it takes more than a day, but I'd love to get a hike or two in while I'm there.  I love hiking & I'm from Michigan, so they're tame hikes.  Outside of Michigan terrain, I've only ever experience a small mountain hike in AZ and NV.  

So I'd appreciate any tips on what to bring and where to go.  I'll be going solo, since none of my fellow conference-goers are interested--another thing to consider.  I understand that I'll have to be more aware of my abilities.  Tried to figure out if there was a group hike from the website, but I'm not finding any.  

Thank you so much!

Hi there! Thank you for that suggestion.  I'll have to keep it in mind when I'm back there.  My trip was last month.  🙂  I wish I had more time to explore L.A.!

You lucked out snow wise despite my dire predictions. I glad you took the opportunity to go.  It's a very special place.
