Yosemite's Glen Aulin trail leads to a High Sierra Camp about 5 miles from Tuolumne Meadow (Highway 120 - Tioga Pass Road). A short stroll from the camp is this picturesque waterfall - White Cascade.
The Glen Aulin High Sierra Camp is one of 7 in Yosemite's high country. These summer only Camps are rustic tent cabins for sleeping and a dining tent serving breakfast and dinner. Also backpackers not sleeping in a tent cabin may purchase meals.
Advance reservations are required. For more information check out website -

I still have my mission to try this someday when I find a worthy waterfall in Ireland, its a spectacular result! And I am very glad you included the trees in this for scale. Usually if I see waterfalls, they tend to be delicate mountain streams tumbling over rocks, and without the sense of scale, I would have thought this the same, but thanks to your inclusion, I can see its more a raging torrent! The light falls beautifully too, on both the trees and the water.
All the best

So many places to visit in Yosemite! Of course, although I planned two entire days for it, I missed many things, probably hidden details that would demand more time over there! The first day, as a matter of fact, I couldn't visit it because it was raining, windy and cold! So I changed my plans and included another day to visit it! Still, not enough.
I like those falls and your picture of them!
TFS - congrats,

I can almost hear the roar of the water cascading down this falls, I like the effect of the slow speed on the mood. Very well done, tfs.
About 20 miles west of Merced is the Merced Wildlife Refuge, there were hundreds of sandhill cranes when I went there and they are supposed to be there year-round. There were others birds also but I went there just for the cranes. Awesome place.

Fabulous silky texture of the waterfall, with the long shutter used. Light gave a bluish tone and the whole sight is magnificent from the POV taken.
Have a nice Sunday,
