This is my first post here, so hello to everyone.
Briefly, I am a 49yo man who spent a lot of time outdoors when young, just now getting back into it. The lightweight systems have evolved enormously, so I am on a steep learning curve now. This site has been an enormous help.
I just finished reading The Shelter and Clothing system book-it was a much needed, different view of lightweight systems.
My question is this. In April, I will pack into Yosemite. I expect the weather will be tough to predict and there will likely be snow on the ground.
My bias is to use a bivy/tarp for shelter rather than a tent, but I wonder if this is enough. I also read the reviews of the Hennessy Hammock on the site; it looks like there are some advantages, but it does not look like there is a way to protect gear well if the weather goes bad.
What type of shelter would you use for this type of scenario?
Thanks very much for a great site,
