|Bridal Veil Falls at Yosemite|
This was a COOL (as in temperature) short hike to see the Bridal Veil falls up close. It was in the fifties because we were up so high in elevation. The falls were rushing and falling so hard over the edge that you literally were rained on as you walked up close to it because of the wind rushing around the canyon and the heavy mist coming down. People coming back down the path were soaking wet. Most did not have rain gear or a jacket, not knowing it was very cool and wet right at the falls. We didn't know either. I turned to Eldy as we started up and said, "It looks like we're gonna get wet!" Two little girls coming back down stopped in front of me and said, "YEAH! We got soaked! Feel our skin!" And they both stuck out their arms for me to compare how wet they were. We went up anyway, not wanting to miss this spectacular falls....It was THUNDERING over the cliff! And we got VERY wet!
I got to see LOTS of snow, even made a snow angel at Avalanche Creek..hm-m-m-m, wonder if that was one of the 26 avalanche zones the park service was talking about on their web site?
We probably will spend many days exploring this natural treasure. It's HUGE! And it's AMAZING! And it's GORGEOUS! See you tomorrow in the little town of Coarsegold, CA, where the Park Sierra RV park is located. We're going to explore the little shops there....
