On my third and final day in Yosemite, I hiked up the Mist Trail all the way to Nevada Falls and then headed back down the John Muir Trail. This was my first time on the trail and I was thoroughly impressed! Not one but TWO massive waterfalls!
The water was really flowing due to all the snow melt. Both waterfalls were roaring! I had a very enjoyable and wet hike up to the top of Vernal Falls. From there it was smooth sailing to the top of Nevada. I'll have to come back another time to conquer Half Dome...the cables were still not up when I hiked.
This is another must do hike! Keep in mind the water is somewhat tied to the snow melt.
