Dayhiked the trail from Glacier Point to Happy Isles. Walked, photographed, gawked ...this is that one must do trail in Yosemite. Well laid out for scenic value! 2010 winter brought 200% snowpack to High Sierras so the waterfalls were running really BIG! It was awesome to stnad on the lip of 3 major falls & experience the waterfalls! We lunched just past Panorama Point taking in some awesome views, basked on the cool granite at the top of Nevada falls being cooled by the fine mist coming off the falls, saw rainbows at the waterfalls & got drenched on the Mist Trail. Make sure your camera is well protected or you have awater proof one - It will get soaked as will you! We even got to watch some rock climbers on Liberty Cap when we on the lip of Nevada falls (Wonder how the falls look from their vantage point!)

Logistics: Took the one-way shuttle drop off to Glacier Point. With all the traffic jam it was a 2 hr drive up. Definitely recommend the use of shuttles -- eliminates the wait to find parking!

Critter Report: Mule deer, 2 cinnamon black bears ( Valley floor), blue jay, assortment of squirrells
Flowers: Buck Brush, Rock Penstamon, Lupines, snowflowers, dogwood
