UC Yosemite Field Station to View of Wawona Dome on the Chilnualna Falls Trail
(5 miles, +1,500/-1,500 feet).
The University of California has some sweet facilities for hosting conferences, including some at Yosemite, so I reserved one of them in late October for our annual “Human Nature Group Masters” conference of colleagues and UCSD alumni. We presented our research to each other during the day and socialized in the evening. It was beautiful and fun at the same time!
But maybe the best part of the conference was our Sunday afternoon hike. We walked right out the front door and over to the Chilnualna Falls Trailhead to do a fun five miles up to see Wawona Dome.
We made it back by sundown and did our traditional barbecue where I burn (I mean grill) all the meat.
