  • Dorsey High School
  • Yosemite National Park: Hetch Hetchy

Five students from Dorsey High School in LA came to Yosemite over their spring break. They explored the Hetch Hetchy wilderness, participated in a backcountry stewardship project, and braved rain and even some snow - a first experience for some!

Thank you to the Yosemite Conservancy for their generous support of these students.

Day 3: April 4, 2012

Today we hiked off trail from basecamp to a place called Le Conte Point, but after going so far we just camped at a ridge for the afternoon before we had to go back to base camp. We played so many different games and sung songs. Today may have been the best day here!!! It’s snowing!!!
