Bridalveil Fall ~ Yosemite National Park

In my previous post about our visit to Yosemite National Park in August of 2011, I shared photos of Yosemite Falls. In that post, I mentioned that we visited other waterfalls during our visit. It turns out that we actually only saw two waterfalls close-up – Yosemite Falls and Bridalveil Fall.

We did, however, see other waterfalls from a distance when we went to Glacier Point. Wow! What a view that place affords to visitors. I'll be sharing photos from Glacier Point in a future post.

Today, I'm sharing photos of our visit to Bridalveil Fall.

According to the National Park Service website, Bridalveil Fall is 620 feet tall. And it's usually the first waterfall visitors will see when they arrive at Yosemite Valley.

There's a paved trail that leads to the base of Bridalveil Fall.

Here's a photo of part of that trail.

This is a peek of Bridalveil Fall from the trail.

Here's a better view of Bridalveil Fall from the trail.

There was a stream along the trail.

Here's a close-up view of that stream.

And here's a different view of the stream.

Here's another view from the trail to Bridalveil Fall.

And here's another peak of Bridalveil Fall from the trail. Can you see all of the mist the waterfall created?

Here are two more photos of Bridalveil Fall.

Apparently, I didn't take photos of Bridalveil Fall when we arrived at its base. I probably didn't want my camera to get wet from the mist you saw in one of the photos above.

After our visit to the base of Bridalveil Fall, we stopped along the road to get more pictures (and video) of Bridalveil Fall. That's my husband there with the video camera. I like this photo because it shows just how huge and magnificent the granite mountains are in Yosemite National Park.

Thanks for stopping by!
