Time for the next Yosemite installment. These are from the day we spent in Yosemite Valley, home to Half Dome, El Capitan, and most of the amazing waterfalls the park is so famous for. We started the day with a picnic beside a river. The water was freezing, but the kids managed to get pretty wet anyway (cast and all!).
Atti, getting his toes wet.
Patchie, trying to take it all in.
I want to live here!
This was taken on our hike to bottom of Yosemite Falls, the 5th tallest waterfall in the world. It was a HUGE waterfall, with unbelievable amounts of freezing cold water just pouring down the cliffside. Atti and I have just come across the foot bridge that passes directly in front of the bottom of the falls. It was windy, freezing, loud, and more than a little startling for our youngest camper. He preferred seeing the falls from a distance!
Here is a better shot of the falls, from a warmer, drier distance. These pictures can't really do it all justice. Everything was just too big to truly capture with our little camera. But, you get the idea...
We might not have braved Half Dome on this trip, but we did do a lot of rock climbing.
The perfect place for a little rest.
