I took so many photos in Yosemite, and I am having a tough time picking through them, so I’m on to the second day of Yosemite pics.
After our walk to the top of Vernal Falls we had appetites for more waterfalls.
Yosemite Falls were dry, but the new loop trail that gets you there was quite lovely. And since there were only a couple other people on the trail, we had the whole place to ourselves.
The next day it was time to declare Junior Ranger status by taking the oath and getting the badge.
The rest of the day was spent cruising the Valley Loop. We took a short walk to the base of El Capitan –a 7,569-foot a vertical rock formation. Besides running through the trees and leaping over rocks, we gawked at the granite cliff towering above us.
A couple stops along the way and we were at Bridalveil Fall.
That night we had dinner with a friend from college who is now the park geologist, and his wife, the park ornithologist, and their daughter. It was a great way to end an awesome trip.
We can’t wait to go back.
