Yosemite Waterfalls Guide

The Yosemite Waterfalls Guide is our summary of the waterfalls that have compelled us to visit Yosemite National Park time and time again. As a result, we’ve managed to experience almost all…

Yosemite Summer With Kids And Grandparents Itinerary – June 15, 2017 to June 18, 2017

The goal of this weekend trip was to expose my nephew to our favorite haunt – Yosemite National Park. Tahia had been here before, but we also wanted to keep both the kids engaged by allowing them to keep each other…

“Going Against The Grain” (Yosemite – June 15, 2017 to June 18, 2017)

I wasn’t sugar coating it telling them they had at least another hour or more just to even get up to the 3rd Chilnualna Falls, which would be the next opportunity to cool off…

Yosemite With Baby Itinerary – June 2, 2011 to June 4, 2011

With our daughter not quite 5 months old, we did this trip as another test of what we can and can’t do with a baby. We also brought Julie’s Mom along since we figured that this would be a pretty easy trip as far as the amount of sightseeing and hiking that we were doing…

“Something New Every Time” (Yosemite National Park, CA – June 2, 2011 to June 4, 2011)

Julie was having an interesting time trying to reach back into her memories to try to see where the flooded sections of the trail were. The dangers of that day were nowhere apparent on this day…

Hiker 2020 Cascade Falls, California

I visited these falls April 2005 and loved them. It’s almost as good as Yosemite Falls but you have to be in the right place to view them Cascade Falls. I saw the same view as Johnny Cheng. Park at the Inspiration Point (near the tunnel) and carefully walk down the rockface northward to near […]

Yosemite Weekend with the Parents Itinerary – April 29, 2005 to May 1, 2005

This weekend itinerary for Yosemite National Park covered Yosemite Valley as well as a little bit of Hetch Hetchy. By now, we were quite familiar with all the most accessible sights within the reserve. Really, the main motivation for this trip was to introduce…

“Cramps and Thunderstorms” (Upper Yosemite Falls Hike – April 30, 2005)

Of all the waterfall hiking and viewing I’ve done up to this point, the one thing missing was getting to the top of Yosemite Falls. My inner voice kept nagging at me to do the hike…

Yosemite Off The Beaten Path Itinerary – April 22, 2004 to April 25, 2004

This itinerary covered another weekend spent at Yosemite National Park. However, what differentiated this particular visit was that we targeted some of the less-explored parts of the park. This included the backcountry of Hetch Hetchy Valley…

Yosemite Weekend with Mom Itinerary – March 19, 2004 to March 21, 2004

This itinerary covered a weekend at Yosemite National Park that I cynically referred to as the “change-in-company-vacation-policy” trip because they essentially changed the rules in such a way that I either had to use some vacation hours or lose them…

“Small World” (Yosemite – March 19, 2004 to March 21, 2004)

With reduced maximum vacation hours in lieu of sick leave hours, I had to take a vacation or lose some of those hard-earned hours. That sucks! So, where should I go on a spontaneous trip?

Southern Yosemite Initiation Itinerary – May 9, 2003 to May 11, 2003

In this itinerary, we did a weekend camping trip where the focus of this visit was to explore the quiet southern section of Yosemite National Park, particularly in the Wawona area…

Yosemite Group Itinerary – May 30, 2002 to June 2, 2002

This trip was the very first time that we explored Yosemite National Park with the primary purpose of visiting waterfalls (or waterfalling, if you will). Since I’d imagine we were in the infant stages of our waterfall addiction, it turned out that the timing of this trip…
