Yosemite’s Vernal Falls on the Mist Trail, #2 in the Yosemite Serie
Hiking to the falls on the Mist Trail, the hike gets louder and louder the closer one gets to the 317′ drop of Vernal Falls. The wind carries the mist from the waterfalls onto the hiker’s adjacent path so the steep rock hewn steps up to the falls can be slick in parts. Prepared hikers don bright yellow rain ponchos along the trail. It’s a “Wow Moment” to stand so close to such a powerful force of nature. It’s truly breath taking.
Once one is past Vernal Falls it isn’t long before arriving at the second set of waterfalls higher up the mountain, the 594′ Nevada Falls. The sound of both of the falls can be deafening and exhilarating, and they will leave you in awe of the power of nature. Rainbows often appear over both of the falls. This photograph is just a small 20′ tall section of the Mist Trail abutting Vernal Falls.
I am forever thankful for those who fought to establish and preserve Yosemite National Park (and other national parks) so future generations could enjoy it and soak it all in, too. It is an amazing national park that everyone should see at least once in their life. It will get into your heart, and change your perspective.

It reminded me of this Bible verse:
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not rely on your own insight. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make straight your paths. Proverbs 3: verses 5-6.”
