Backpacking in the Sierra


You read that title right. Backpacking, not bikepacking. We left our bikes at home for a four day trip through some beautiful portions of the Hoover Wilderness and Yosemite National Park. At the end of the trip however we both agreed that our bodies prefer cycling to hiking. It’s nice to let the bike carry our stuff while we use the magic of mechanical advantage to move quickly, but not too quickly, through our landscape.
