Left Yosemite on a Wednesday, and this was most of Thursday.
Got a bit lucky with a permit being available the same day I went into the backcountry office.
This post is feeling a bit like bragging, as is just about everything on here really. Not sure what to do about that. Maybe that is just the internet for you.
I am traveling by myself. I have a lot of freedom to do things right now.
One day things will be different.
