Our second day at Yosemite started at Glacier Point, which was recommended by Todd our neighbour at the campsite. The view was amazing. You can see the entire valley, several waterfalls and the huge granite monoliths that tower above you when you are in the valley. Several hang gliders were taking off from the point and heading for some close up views of Yosemite Falls.
From there we drove in the direction of the valley, but stopped at Bridalveil Falls. By this time there were a lot of other visitors arriving at the park so it was hard to get a good view and photo of the fall but it was very pretty.
We got to the valley and left the car behind. We walked to Yosemite Falls which is one of most impressive falls I have seen, despite the fact that a dry winter has meant that it's not as big as it usually is.
We wandered around the park, saw a couple of weddings taking place and, after seeing people rafting down the river, decided to give that a go as well. The river is pretty low in parts, but the three mile trip down the Merced River was very relaxing and enjoyable.
We headed back to camp and changed into bathers to take a dip in the river. It was cold, but it was really nice and refreshing. Todd gave us a bowl of very yummy chilli for dinner and we had a lovely evening soaking up the atmosphere and quiet of our last night camping and our last night on the road.
