Section 1: Tuolumne Meadows to Silver Pass
On Monday August 5, 1963, we started up the Lyell Fork of the Tuolumne River to Donohue Pass (11,100 feet; 3,384 m), beginning our adventure.
Note: The normal starting point is in the Yosemite Valley. We decided to save some time and distance by starting at Tuolumne Meadows.
