A quick get away to Yosemite in September. It was last minute but turned out to be a great adventure. We only came up to finish the hike to the top of Nevada Falls that we were unable to complete in our last trip because of ice and snow blocking the trail. We are hardcore but choose not enough to risk getting killed or injured just to finish a hike. So, we came in for an overnighter and crushed the trail the next morning and came home. Fun!
Hiking the valley floor
Heather and I love our long back country hikes but there is also something about just exploring the Yosemite Valley floor…
The merced river
Water levels are a little lower on this side. Last year was crazy
deer population explosion
There are always deer around the park but this year they seemed to have a population expansion

Heather and I have plans to hike that in 2017, we applied for our permits so we hope to go soon!

Heather always takes time to fiddle with water critters or inspect plants. I patently wait for her to take 2,800 photos.

finishing the nevada falls hike
We tried to do this hike in the snow but had to turn back for safety reasons.
