Glacier Point

The Glacier Point overlook is a popular "high-elevation" spot in Yosemite, both for its scenic beauty, expansive views, and the fact that several trails originate nearby. We trekked from the Point to the valley below following an 8 mile trail which skirted the cliff face and led us past Illilouette Fall, and over both Nevada and Vernal Falls. We circled around Half Dome and got a really good feel for its unique formation; we also stood at the base of its massive neighbor the "Liberty Bell." Here are a few shots--more soon to follow.

Yes, I did bring my tripod on this one. :) Much to the resentment of my shoulders.
