Alaska 2013, Day 11, Yosemite
Wednesday June 12, 2013
Hiked up to Vernal Falls. We could walk right from our campground (Upper Pines). Pretty steep hike up to the bridge and really crowded. We hiked 1/8 mi beyond the bridge to a place where you could walk out onto a big flat boulder out in the river. Great view of the falls and away from the crowds. We watched 2 dippers working the river.
Float the Merced River
We rented a raft to float 3 mi of the Merced River through the valley. Great views all along the river. Only a few rapids. Water was cold but farther down the river we did swim.
