Yosemite Day One: Vernal Falls
What a beautiful day Friday was. After an early morning yoga class and a latte I was primed for a road trip. And oh how easy it was to slip into vacation mode.
This was our first hike of the weekend, originating from the Yosemite Valley floor. I hiked this "short easy hike" (according to a volunteer ranger) that turned out to be a "strenuous and up hill hike with some decent elevation changes" in Dansko clogs.
Afterwords, I felt very deserving of a bison burger, french fries and an icy cold beer.
