Yosemite Falls Mountain – Year of Yosemite (YOY) – Day 262

Yosemite Falls

Yosemite Falls and Yosemite Falls Point

Domes are not the only peaks in Yosemite National Park that warrant a hike. Any time there is a waterfall, and there are a number of them at Yosemite, there is a mountain down which the water must fall and/or trickle.

Yosemite Falls is no exception and the mountain down which it flows is a favorite challenge for those seeking a strenuous or moderately strenuous hike with a payoff of stunning views. The main goal for those seeking to test themselves appears to be Yosemite Point (see bottom photo).

Another feature I wasn’t aware of was the Lost Arrow Spire (see photo below). I only found out about this formation once I returned home and began to organize my photographs.
