yosemite: water falls and granite monoliths

from the yosemite valley, we hiked up past a couple waterfalls.   this is the bottom of vernal falls:

then we continued up hundreds of stone steps to the top of nevada falls.    this is the calm river before it takes the 600-foot plunge over the edge.  

we cooled off our exhausted feet in the water and felt completely refreshed afterwards!

we continued the walk along the john muir trail and were rewarded with this spectacular view - the back of half dome on the left and nevada falls on the right.  

a good adventure with pops :)

Way out of my league. The attainable women can't get that far on foot.
