Vernal Falls Stairs, Yosemite

This picture was taken in May, on the stone steps that lead up to the top of Vernal Falls at Yosemite. The mist from the waterfall was so thick, it was like being caught in a rainstorm. You can see how heavy the falls were in this picture -- they're the white mass to the right of the person at the left edge of the frame. By the time we got to the top of the falls, we were absolutely drenched. And it wasn't even an especially wet winter or spring. I was there again 3 months later, and the steps were bone dry. Here's a picture of the waterfall from then. Quite a difference, eh?
