Jason and I are currently enjoying our final full day in Yosemite National Park. Tomorrow, we’ll be up early to drive into Yosemite Valley for some shopping and pizza. Plus, I don’t think I could visit the park without visiting the Valley. Then, we’ll be headed south to Sequoia/Kings Canyon!
Onto the next installment of my Yosemite 2010 recap!
Day 3 – June 7, 2010
The day began with deer hanging out by our tent cabin…
Which was followed by our first bear! Note: That was NOT our tent cabin. I was religious about using our bear box properly.
A visit to the base of Yosemite Falls.
Lower Yosemite Falls
It was a little wet crossing the footbridge.
We hiked to Mirror Lake.
Half Dome from a different vantage point.
We visited the Ahwahnee Hotel twice: Once for a photography workshop and again for an evening guided “stroll.”
Day 4 – June 8, 2010
Day 4 was a biggie! A 7-mile hike up to Vernal Fall and Nevada Fall. Our “Adventure Hike.”
Our initial crew. The older couple dropped out about half a mile in.
Just a little water.
View from the top of Vernal Fall. Along the left, you can make out the Mist Trail that we hiked up. “Mist” was a bit of an understatement.
Next Stop: Nevada Fall.
Hiking with out guide and staring up in awe.
Made it to the top!
The view from where we sat for lunch.
What goes up must come down. Time to head back.
