I went to Yosemite National Park on Monday, June 20, 2011. I left from Sacramento around 9:00 am and arrived in Groveland, California to eat around 11:30. We then went into the park and visited Bridalveil Fall. You can walk up close to the base of the waterfall and get soaked. As you approach the air gets very cool from the evaporating water absorbing all the surrounding heat. The wind also picks up and is forceful enough to make people unsteady on their feet. Next was a visit to Lower Yosemite Falls then a hike to Mirror lake.
