Hikers Near Vernal Falls

While in Yosemite National Park, the hike to Vernal Falls is a 'must' for any able-bodied visitor. To give scale to this picture, many hikers can be seen on the right side of the image and on top of the falls. Generally speaking, vertical format photographs do not show well on a computer screen but in Yosemite National Park so many of your sights are vertical. Though only 1.6 miles from the trailhead to the top of the falls, I had to rest frequently due to the elevation gain. This is a gorgeous hike and, if you are fit, you may continue on to the larger Nevada Falls another mile up the trail. (2014)
