We stayed in a motel in Mariposa, just outside Yosemite National Park. The next day my cousins took us back into the Park. On the way to Yosemite Village we stopped by a surging river.
Bonnie said she had never seen the rivers so full in all the years that she has been coming here.
Lynne had booked us a ride through the park on an open road train. We had an informative guide and lots of photo stops.
At every bend in the road there was a stunning scene to greet us.
Lynne and I are standing below a waterfall called Ribbon Falls. Although it is not very impressive, it famous for being the highest single drop waterfall in USA.
A closer look at Ribbon Falls.

After the train ride we took a shuttle bus to Yosemite Falls, it is a double decker waterfall. Then we walked right up to the bottom with hundreds of other tourists and a dog.
We got soaked but it was awe inspiring listening to the thunder of water. Can you see a faint rainbow in the spray. What a day, I'll never forget.
