Nevada Falls

I have fun doing that. Getting wet and tired, feet blistered, hips hurting. For some reason, the word has spread and hundreds of other individuals want to do the same. The only difference is: I've done it several times already, I know what it is about and still keep coming back. Go figure.

We took friends to Nevada Falls in Yosemite NP. We were really lucky to find a spot for our tent. Recently, the park stopped keeping some of the camping sites for walk-ins, everything is for reservation only and it's booked months in advance.
Getting soaking wet on the Misty Trail is the highlight of the trail. Not so much on the way down, when my body is not being warmed by the steep incline.

After Yosemite, a short stop at South Tufa, on Mono Lake. Just for comparison, here are photos of the area from the last November. Much nicer then, if you ask me.

Then, a step back in time,  in Virginia City, Nevada.

The rest of the photos is HERE.
