Yosemite- Day 3

For the last day camping and hiking in Yosemite, my dad and I had our biggest hike yet up to the top of upper Yosemite Falls. It's a good 7.6 miles, nothing we can't handle. And lucky timing, too, since in a couple weeks this seasonal waterfall will most likely be dried up till next year. Did you know this is the highest waterfall in North America? Here are some views on the way up.

I wasn't a fan of the ravenous, immune to human, zombie-like squirrels, but I liked to see this little guy laying on his stomach. Or maybe he was on a stakeout for his next meal from an unsuspecting hiker?

This could be a repeat photo, but I seriously couldn't get enough of this view.

Scared of heights? Me, too.

Yosemite hosts many youth programs throughout the summer to help kids (like here below) develop their connection with the environment.
