Day 318 - Road Trip, Day 4 - Finally Playing the Tourist
For our last day in Yosemite, we went into the valley and did some of the popular stuff (there'd been relatively few people everywhere else, which was nice). The main event was a hike up the Mist Trail to Vernal Falls and then up a little further toward Nevada Falls via the John Muir Trail and then back down. The Mist Trail is ridiculously steep and the steps cut into the cliffside are sketchy as hell, but the waterfalls were beautiful. The first three shots are of Vernal Falls from several different angles, the fourth shot is of the Emerald Pool, and the fifth shot is of Nevada Falls.
We then checked out (but didn't bother hiking to) Lower Yosemite Falls (sixth photo) and Bridalveil Falls (last photo), which were both barely a trickle.
