Nevada Falls

After lunch in the sun at the top of Vernal Falls, a few of us decided to keep going up to Nevada Falls.  Maybe it's the sound, the mist, or the power of the water, but waterfalls amaze me.

Nevada Falls

Vernal Falls and Nevada Falls are part of the Merced River, the main river that runs through Yosemite Valley.

The mighty Merced.

We saw two mule trains on their way back from the high Sierras.  They bring supplies to the camps there and take out the trash.  The camps in the high Sierras are much like the AT huts here in NH and the White Mountains.

The trail up to and down from Nevada Falls was a loop trail, so on our way down we turned and saw this amazing view of the falls.

After seeing the falls from Glacier Point, 
we knew we had to hike to them.  
We hiked up the Mist Trail to Vernal Falls... got soaking wet, but loved every step of it

The view from the top.

Don't fall, Jay!

Rainbows... so beautiful.

Bridal Veil Falls

After flying and driving all through the night to get to Yosemite, we went straight to Bridal Veil Falls with the rest of our family.

Beautiful, breathtaking, and wet.

Jay and my cousins' husband and boyfriend obviously did not read the sign!

Yosemite, California

 Last month the Brewitt side of my family went to Yosemite, CA for my cousin's wedding.  If you've never been there, you must go!  Here are a few pics from the trip...  more to come in the next few days.
