Short trip to Yosemite Valley

Postby MountainMinstrel » Thu Feb 01, 2007 8:52 pm

My wife and I had the opportunity to spend a night at the Yosemite Lodge this week. I was hoping that we would get a dusting of snow but allas we did not. :crybaby: But hey at least it didn't rain! In fact, it turned out to be a great couple of days with great weather and a full moon. Image

Nice! That one you have titled "Frozen Yosemite Falls" is cool. I was up there during February one year where the falls looked like that. Did you hike up the falls trail? I hiked up and then traversed over to the base of the upper fall...the little amount of water falling then was freezing and turning into snow before hitting the bottom and there was about a 60' high pile of fresh, white powder...really cool looking.

Thanks, I was with my wife so we never left the valley floor, but it was a great escape all the same :D There was a huge pile of clean white snow at the base of Upper Fall, and it looked like the water that did not freeze was going behind it. It must have been very cool up close.
