Welcome to the Sounds Like a Search and Rescue Podcast! Also known as SLASR. Join an experienced search and rescue volunteer and his friend as they discuss all things related to hiking and search and rescue in the White Mountains of New Hampshire. This week we revisit a recent backpacking trip to Yosemite National Park. Thinking about planning a trip to Yosemite and need some ideas for an itinerary? We have you covered as this episode will review our travels throughout Yosemite including Camping outside of Glacier Point, Views of Mount Starr King, Illilouette Falls, The Panoramic Trail, Nevada Falls, Little Yosemite Campground, Half Dome, the Mist Trail, Curry Village and we even saw a Black bear munching grubs by the side of the road surrounded by tourists. All this plus Ben Pease from the Hiking Buddies joins us for an update on all things Hiking buddies, more car break ins, contingency plans in case one of the hosts dies and we need to hire a replacement, Geysers, fake drowning, hiking drama in the grand canyon, and search and rescues all come at the same time in the Whites this week - rescues on Avalon Trail, Jewel Trail, Mt Cube and Monadnock
