- The Hike: 3 miles starting at 9,300′-to just under 10,000′

About Lindsay: Lindsay is returning this season as our lead Trail Ambassador. She joined the FOI team last spring and hasn’t gone running for the hills! Originally from San Diego, Lindsay grew up spending summers in the Sierra on family camping trips. After graduating from SDSU with a B.S. in Nutrition she dove into a career in enology and wine making. However, after working multiple vintages in California and Australia she discovered her hobby of rock climbing was becoming an obsession. So she ran away from real life to work and play in Yosemite National Park. She made the transition to the east side permanent two years ago and is excited to hit the trails once again, to be an ambassador for the land and trails she loves.
