Recently I took a quick trip to Yosemite National Park with my husband and a couple of friends. The highlight of the trip was hiking the Mist Trail which I have to say is the World’s Best Day Hike. Ok, I haven’t hiked everywhere in the world (yet!) but I still would be hard pressed to find a day hike better than this.
Yes, it’s busy, but it’s definitely worth it. You have gorgeous views of 317-foot/96.5m Vernal Falls and 594-foot/181m Nevada Falls along the way: You get to see them from down the valley, from the base, from the side and from up top. As well, if you return by the John Muir trail you get to see Nevada Falls from an entirely different vantage point. To cap it off, you have to drive up to the Glacier Point viewpoint after you do this hike so you can see the whole hike from above.
There is tons of info on the National Park website and elsewhere online about this hike so I won’t go into detail about it here. Instead I’ll let my photos tell the story.
