I'm planning a trip to Yosemite NP and maybe Sequoia for the end of Sept. into Oct. Do folks hammock camp in and around the park? I wonder if the trees are too big? Are there areas too open/treeless? Too cold?
Are folks hanging there or should I plan on tenting instead???
Please reply only if you have experience in the area.
I've never been to that area of the country. I just got a Western Mountaineering Mitylite bag that I will try to use as a "Pod". It's hoodless, with a cinch cord at the top, and has a foot zipper; rated to 40*. I tried it today and it seems like it might work nicely (but it wasn't cold out). I've been led to believe the temps should stay well above freezing at that time. I am trying this because I just don't have time to order or make an UQ. Who has used a pod and what do you think?
Please reply only if you have experience with this.
Also, I've never been to high elevation before, how worried should this east coast boy be? What other advice would you give?
If anyone wants to hang out in Yosemite after Sept. 25 let me know.
