About the Author
Author Steven P. Medley,
hiker, president of the Yosemite Association, and constant friend of the park, spent 35 of his 57 years in Yosemite National Park, starting out as a ranger before moving to the Yosemite Association, which he led for over two decades. Steve was one of Yosemiteand#8217;s greatest supporters, building the Yosemite Association into a tremendous force on behalf of the park. Beyond his professional duties, his love for Yosemite was founded on and renewed by lengthy trips into the deepest backcountry. A map of routes heand#8217;d hiked looks a lot like a map of Yosemiteand#8217;s trail network. Steve's energy, drive, and great good humor made him as beloved around Yosemite as Yosemite was to him.
