Yosemite National Park, one of the first wilderness parks in the United States, is best known for its waterfalls, but within its nearly 1,200 square miles, you can find deep valleys, grand meadows, ancient giant sequoias, a vast wilderness area, and much more.

Yosemite Falls is fed mostly by snowmelt. Peak flow usually happens in late May, but by August, Yosemite Falls is often dry. It begins flowing again a few months later, after winter snows arrive

Wow, 1430 ft. is a big waterfall!!  Great pics...thanks for sharing.  I'd love to get there someday. This is Helmet Falls in Kootenay Natl Park, part of the Rockwall Trail.  Only 1100 ft. but a full day's hike to get to:

That is a beautiful photo of Helmet Falls in Kootenay Natl Park. I will definitely add that to my list of beautiful places to visit. As I can see in your photo you had much more sunlight than I with the cloudy day I had for picture taking. Best regards, Matt

you definately gave me the extra push I needed. A friend of mine had

La randonnée est très agréable avec le temps doux. Plus le parc n'était pas bondé à cette époque de l'année. Mon VC OSC aime voyage. Cordialement, Matt
Hi Matt, beautiful pictures

The smile on your face shows you had a great time.  I'm going to the Grand Canyon at the end of April for the first time since 1987 and my wife's first time ever. I thought I'd share some pictures of Jiu Zhai Gou, a UN World Heritage Site in a remote part of Sichuan Province, China (actually, not too far from last year's devastating earthquake).  The waterfalls are much smaller but beautiful - just as the rest of the area.  My pictures don't do justice to the natural beauty, so please take my word for how nice it is. BR, Dan Hey, I think this is my 200th post.  It may not be watch related, but it is in reply to Lounger's Monday!
PLAIN AMAZING! nt
