Making a long story short. I was in Yosemite for a discussion on diversity and inclusion with non-profits, government agencies, and outdoor recreational leaders. On our second night camping, a thunderous rock slide occurred that echoed through the entire park. It was by far one of the most bone-chilling and amazing moments I ever had camping. And I’m pretty sure the guy who base jumps with his dog died while we were there. He wasn’t affiliated with my group and i found out later after his death was broadcast by the outdoor industry.

First and foremost, to get to this trailhead you need to drive down a 2-mile, one lane dirt road that is quite steep.

Winter Hike to Calypso Cascades

While most people go snowshoeing near the Bear Lake or Glacier Gorge area in RMNP, Wild Basin is a much less trafficked option.
