Yosemite Park, Day 2, Friday, April 19, 2013

Today we returned to Yosemite National Park as there was more to see than the Sequoia trees that we saw on Wednesday.  Actually we traveled further into the park to Yosemite Valley, land of granite mountains and water falls.   At Bridalveil Fall we walked to a viewing area of the fall to find ourselves in a mist as heavy as a rainfall.  Being springtime with temperatures rising, the snow on the mountaintops is melting and the water is flowing.  Other falls, Horsehair and Yosemite were also pouring hundreds of gallons of water from the mountaintops each minute.  El Capitan, the best known and most massive granite cliff in this park, had rock climbers exercising their skills on the sheer walls.  We did stop at the Visitor's Center and after looking around at the displays in the center we watched a movie about the park.

After leaving the park we stopped for dinner at Todd's Barbeque- we couldn't resist eating a place with the name Todd in it.  And like our son, Todd, this Todd also did a good job cooking.
