Dr. Pannu’s hiking adventure at 8500 feet!

Hiking is a passion of Dr. Pannu’s and this summer, he had the opportunity to go on a huge hiking adventure with his family through Yosemite National Park. Yosemite is home to more than 800 miles of trails and Dr. Pannu had a blast exploring some of them. He camped at Tuolomne Meadows and hiked the Gaylor and Granite Lakes, which are a group of 5 high country lakes located near the Tioga Pass and the Cathedral Lakes trail, which is a 7-mile hike that takes you along Lower Cathedral Lake. Lower Cathedral Lake is among the most impressive of Yosemite’s granite-wrapped High Sierra lakes. It’s surrounded by Cathedral Peak in the east and by Echo and Tresidder Peaks along the southern shore, all of them over 10,000 feet (3,050 meters) in elevation. Dr. Pannu also hiked the Mono Pass trail through the Tuolomne Meadows in Yosemite. This trail takes you along the western slope of the Sierras, passing beside streams and meadows and then through the rocky, barren Bloody Canyon and the eastern Sierras, with views beyond to Mono Lake and the bone-dry Mono Valley.

Dr. Pannu recommends taking up hiking as a summer activity because it supports an active, healthy lifestyle. It is a great way to get outside, and get moving while spending time with loved ones. If you don’t have any trails near you, try going on long walks through your neighborhood or if you’re really adventurous, plan a big hike like Dr. Pannu’s!
