Hetch Hetchy, Rancheria Falls
Met the group at Hodgdon Meadows Campground Friday night. Saturday morning drove to Hetch Hetchy, and hiked along the north side of the reservoir to the Rancheria Falls; camped overnight and returned via the same route. Glorious weather, great hiking pals, excellent time. See more info and photos on the Meetup Group:http://www.meetup.com/the-other-original-bay-area-backpack-meetup/events/111950632/
