Yosemite Firefall Itinerary (3 Days)

This itinerary of our weekend visit to Yosemite National Park was about catching the firefall as it was one of the few things left that I didn't try from The Photographer's Guide to Yosemite by Michael Frye. This trip happened during our very first time in the park in the Winter time. It was such a quiet and pleasant experience that we were even able to hear the echoes of our own voices from within Yosemite Valley near one of the firefall spots. We also tried hiking in the snow towards a view of Vernal Fall as well as Mirror Lake. For years, we thought Yosemite in the Winter was an ideal time of year to come to the park for the serenity. However, seven years later when we returned to the park at this time, we saw firsthand how things changed when the firefall phenomenon apparently went viral. I guess it was only a matter of time before the cat was out of the bag, so to speak...
