YOSEMITE VALLEY-USA Adventure Part 5

After viewing Yosemite National Park from above we then drove down into the valley. It was very beautiful with lots of waterfalls. I accidentally left all my brochures in LA so I am having trouble remembering all the names. After surfing the net and my diary, I have worked out some of them. I'm sure Betsy and George will enjoy the falls as they are ardent waterfallers.

 Yosemite Valley and Bridalveil Falls

























 I had to pinch myself to make sure I was really here in this magnificent place.

We walked up to the base of Bridalveil Falls sensible people had raincoats on, we didn't. The spray went for hundreds of feet/metres

 The melted snow rushes past after hurtling over the falls.

A closer look for Betsy and George. I kept thinking of how they would love it here.

  9. I really appreciate to see this beautiful place again. I have all this on video, I didn't make a single picture ! I hated cameras because they were not yet digital.

  10. Your photographs are really marvellous, Diane. I have never been to America and am unlikely to be doing so any time soon. Seeing these beautiful falls and mountains and hearing how awe-inspiring they were for you is such a treat. The scenery looks breath-taking! What a privilege to have visited this magnificent national heritage site.
