Yosemite is one of the most beautiful places you will ever visit. I am amazed every time I go there. I have been 15 times. The springtime has the waterfalls, rivers and lakes. The fall has less water, but less people. Sally had not been to Yosemite since she was 10 years old. It was time to visit again. The winter had heavy snow fall and I was expecting good things. We turned the corner and we saw a waterfall. I pointed and said “That is Yosemite falls. I thought it would be bigger. Maybe the snow is slow to melt.” We turned the next corner and the raging waterfall before us told me the snow melt was fine. “That is Yosemite Falls!” The previous waterfall was Horsetail Falls. I had never seen it active before. All the water falls were going strong. The backdrop of the sheer granite cliffs and the 2524-foot-high three tier falls was outstanding. The wooden deck on the valley floor kept you from walking through the rushing water that overflowed the creek.
Across the valley, Bridalveil Fall has a single 617-foot drop and the trail turned into rain as you get close. This is only to be outdone by Mist Trail at the base of Vernal Fall.
