In “Yosemite at Last,” Andi and Riley’s honeymoon turns into a four-day struggle for survival. Their trip starts out innocently enough. The couple hike up to Glacier Point, a four-mile, arduous hike. Riley suggested they take horses, but Andi prefers to use her own two feet and lead a packhorse. Why? She’s not fond of drop-offs, of which there are plenty on that zigzag route straight up. Do you remember why she hates drop-offs and cliffs? If you don’t, go read The Last Ride to refresh your memory.
The view from Glacier Point is worth it. Mrs. M. has been here, and it’s unbelievable that this woman in the picture (late 1800s) did not plummet over the edge. It’s not easy to get from solid ground out to that scary point, by the way. It’s all blocked off from modern visitors, thank goodness! You can see that the pictures show the very same rock formation. Only the Yosemite and Little Yosemite Falls look different because of camera angles and time of year (I was there last December).
Lost in Yosemite Maze
I created a fun “lost in Yosemite” maze. Click the graphic and print it out to help Andi and Riley find their way back down into the Yosemite Valley and safety.
