We think Patrick looks super-imposed on the background.
Someone said it looks like a JcPenney portraits backdrop!
Once in the valley, our first stop was Bridalveil Falls. After a picnic lunch, of course!
The falls from the parking lot.
The trail up to the falls is paved and easy to navigate.
This is actually a great view even if you don't want to take the short walk.

We spent awhile here just playing in the creek.
The younger kids and I also hung out here waiting for Ken and Nathan to catch us.
The falls from the top of the trail.
Now, you know, Ken and Nathan had to be adventurous and climb right up to the falls!
Doesn't that pool of water look so inviting to swim in?
I didn't stay to watch. Ken said it was actually quite safe the way they went.
I think that other times of the year when the Falls are bigger, it wouldn't be safe.
They were really proud to make it up there.Our next stop, after hanging around in Yosemite Village for a bit, was to go see Yosemite Falls. Yosemite Falls is the tallest waterfall in North America--definately a must-see! And the trail up is paved as well, perfect for strollers if you have them. There is a longer trail that continues on up to the top of the falls and to El Capitan. If we hadn't gotten there at dusk, we would have considered doing one of those (well, some of us!).
One of those rare times when someone offered to take our picture!
Lots of opportunities for rock-climbing (safely) along the way.
Definately not at it's peak season.
