Grant and Dave from Gossamer Gear went to Yosemite National Park to test out some new gear and enjoy the park with Rand and Russ from Trail Designs. We got together to test our latest packs, shelters and cook systems. We did a two night, three day trip down the Merced River Valley. We hiked out of Glacier Point Rd and down to Nevada Falls with tons of killer views of Half Dome along the way. We then took out down the Merced River and found an amazing camp site at Twin Bridges. We base camped there and day hiked to Merced Lake the next day. And lo and behold we ran into longtime customer Muleskinner and his wife Wood Rose. The weather was perfect and Yosemite is indeed one of the great wonders of this world. Check out the pictures from our trip. Enjoy!
