|This is Nevada Falls - in October, when the|
snowmelt has long passed.
|Nevada Falls is part of the Mist Trail, which|
features the "Giant Staircase" en route to
the Half Dome. Nevada Falls is the upper
waterfall, Vernal Falls is below.
|This tranquil pond is at the top of Nevada Falls - again, this|
photo was in October. During the spring melting season it
would be a caldron of white water, pulling everything in the
current towards the 600-foot drop.
