Eastern Sierra with the Parents Itinerary (4 Days)

This itinerary was of a return trip to the Eastern Sierras based off of the Mammoth Lakes area during July 4th Weekend. It took place barely a month after our first serious waterfalling trip in Yosemite National Park. And like that previous trip, Julie and I went with the parents. They were also joined by a large group of other family friends of their age group as well as one of my younger cousins from Taiwan, who actually handled our hikes surprisingly well for a first-timer. As far as the trip goals were concerned here, we aimed to see some other waterfalls that we hadn't seen before in the Eastern Sierra region. We also returned to Rainbow Falls in higher flow. Meanwhile, with this being a holiday weekend, we figured that while Yosemite Valley would be real crowded, we shouldn't have as much problems pursuing the Tioga Road attractions, which included a difficult hike to the top of North Dome.
