Yosemite, Spring Waterfall Steps

Yosemite, Spring Waterfall Steps

When we got back to the campsite after hiking Nevada Falls we were pretty wet, hungry, and frozen (Sammi had turned into an ice-cube). To warm up we decided to go to Curry Village and get some coffee, hot-chocolate, and just roam around the store and pick up some souvenirs. Zack offered to drive (which I thought was silly) but his car was going to be super warm and Sammi needed to thaw, so I took him up on his offer. Unfortunately, there was a HUGE line of traffic from people trying to leave early on Saturday evening. I think we sat in line for about 30 minutes just trying to move the 0.2miles to Curry Village. At one point I got sick of waiting in the car so I got out, took my camera, and decided to see if maybe everything was stopped because of a bear (there was no bear, it was just a lot of traffic).

While out of the car I turned around, facing Curry Village, and saw this neat little waterfall trickling down the rocks. This waterfall isnt usually there, but I loved how it made steps coming down the rock, and the fog/clouds in the background were just awesome and too good to pass up!
