About 8 miles into today’s hike, I reached Burney Falls State Park. It was a short side hike to see the falls. The lady who gave me a ride said that Theodore Roosevelt once said the falls were like the 8 great wonders of the world.
We started later than normal, sleeping in till 5:30am, before getting packed up. The goal was to get to Toulomne meadows by 9 am since, if the store there is operating, that’s what time it would be open. We had two different people tell us it was open for the season and two others that said it was not.
