We unexpectedly got to spend another night and day in Yosemite, as our plans to go to Lake Tahoe for the weekend were cancelled because of the snow.
We chose to go on the Mist Trail, which goes up to Vernal Fall and then Nevada Fall. It isn't a super long hike, but the elevation gain is absurd. We had all previously hiked part of this trail in our earlier visits to the park.
The first time Katie and I were in Yosemite, it was about 100 degrees out, so we only hiked up to the Vernal Fall footbridge.
This time, the three of us hiked to the top of Vernal Fall, and then I turned back and Katie and Jake went all the way to the top of Nevada Fall.
As we neared the top of Vernal Fall, we were hit with a gorgeous view of a rainbow over the base of the fall.
We spent our last night in the park having drinks at Tunnel View while we watched the sunset with our new friend Elise. It was a fantastic way to end a great week in Yosemite!
