Cascade Creek Cascade

Cascade Creek Cascade

Cascade Creek Cascade shows some of the lovely details in a waterfall along Cascade Creek in Yosemite National Park, CA.

This photograph was taken in November, after a major storm added significant volume to all the creeks, waterfalls, and rivers in the Sierras, with snow in the high elevations.

This storm also closed Tioga Pass from the Eastern Sierra, where I started my trip. Instead of a 2 hour drive over the pass from Lee Vining and the Mono Lake area into Yosemite Valley, I had to drive south all the way down and around the Sierras, through Bakersfield, to Fresno, and into the park, about an 8 1/2 hour trip.

Was it worth it? Absolutely!
