By way of full disclosure, I was given an evaluation HikerPro water filter that you will see in this video. A good follow up to the webinar on gear. Enjoy this 7-minute demonstration. You need to treat the water in Yosemite lest you gulp down some Giardia or Cryptosporidium. this YouTube should help you if you are unfamiliar with water treatment.
In other Park news, a 73-year old Minnesota hiker, Mr. Kenneth Stensby, is now missing after heading out Sunday on a hike up the lower Mist trail. He is staying at the Ahwahnee Hotel and told the staff his plans. His backpack was found at the top of the fall. If you were there Sunday and saw him or his bag, contact the park at (209) 372-0432.
