Yosemite Falls

Yosemite Falls are the highest falls in the US. And probably the most photographed, too! There also are several hiking trails; the Lower Falls is paved, wheel chair accessible, and very crowded. The Upper Falls trail is steep, rocky, and gains almost 3,000 ft. in 3 miles.

We first did the lower, then went halfway up the Upper trail to Columbia Rock. Whew, that was enough for us! But great picture opportunities along the way.
