Yosemite National Park, California: Who needs a hiking partner when you have a deer?
To be fair, the tour was really well organised however, it really only allows enough time to have lunch and do the 'lower Yosemite falls' walk (30minutes return trip) or to forfeit lunch and do the 'lower Yosemite falls' and 'mirror lake' walk (1 hour return trip). So if you are an avid nature lover or hiking enthusiast learn from my mistake and plan a few days at the park. There are a number of neat lodges directly inside the park you can even stay at. If one or two walks sounds like enough to you or you really can only fit a day trip in, here are my recommendations for how to best spend your time.
How to get around:
Things to do:
*~ Lower Yosemite Falls (Stop 6) ~*
With a trail only 1.6km long, this 30-minute round trip hike is the most accessible and yet still very rewarding. As you walk through a bouquet of Ponderosa Pine and Incense-Cedar trees you are greeted intermittently by views of the Upper Yosemite falls. Within 10 minutes you arrive at the site of the lower Yosemite falls where the braver among you can climb over the rocks to get up close to the cascading H20 which forms the final part of North America's tallest waterfall.
It's hard to say what made this 1-hour hike the most enjoyable i've ever treated my legs to - perhaps it was the incredible final scene of mirror lake itself, or the subtle fear of meeting face to face with a mountain lion, or perhaps (infact quite possibly) it was the deer acting as my spirit animal
Unlike everywhere else, I didn't do much research into Yosemite before my tour, so I took the advice of my tour leader who advised me that if I was fit and keen enough I could the Mirror Lake walk as well as the lower Yosemite falls walk in during my 3-hours of free time. Boy did he get props for this recommendation! At just 3.2km return, the hike navigated you through a serene and unique environment where almost every rock and tree appears to be covered in moss until you reach a scene which will make you more thankful than ever of the ability of liquid water to reflect light.
